Sponged Serene Silhouettes

Today's cards are a couple of masculine cards I made using the stamp set Serene Silhouettes and also using the sponging and masking techniques.  Have I mentioned before that I love this set and I love sponging? lol I really enjoyed making both of these cards.  This first one was inspired by Jess and you can visit her blog here.  I liked the design and colors of her card and went on to create my own version of it.  Thanks for the inspiration, Jess!  

This second card is similar to one I did a while back for one of my stamp a stacks and a Red Hot Stamper's sketch challenge (check it out here).  Because I really liked that card I decided to give that same idea a try again with my new stamp set.  I actually had the whole card done and thought maybe I could add the sun or moon to this pic, so I punched out a circle and started sponging away again.  Didn't take much to darken things up a little so you could see the "sun".  Then I did the same thing down at the bottom for the reflection.  I still haven't decided if it's the sun or moon yet though. lol 

Thanks for looking and have a great day!

  1. You are the queen of sponging skies!! Both of these are fantastic!

    1. Thanks, Margaret! You always have something nice, encouraging, etc. to say about my cards. So much appreciated!

  2. they both look fab! thanks for taking inspiration from my card :)

  3. I love the colors on your first card ....very pretty ! Just got my Serene Silhouette set and am looking for ways to use it. Hope you don't mind if I copy your idea!

    1. Nope, I don't mind at all since my card was inspired by someone else too. So nice to have others around to inspire us, isn't it. :)


Thank you for your comments. I read everyone! If you ever wonder how I've made something I'd be glad to let you know! Sara
