Happy Friday! I hope you've had a great week!! The theme for our Fabulous Friday projects today over on the Sisters in Stamping blog is to create a project featuring our favorite retiring stamp set. I must say that was a hard choice for me as I am sad to see many go, but since I'm only allowed to choose one I had to go with the Serene Silhouettes set. If you've been following me for any bit of time you know how much I love to create sponged sunset scenes using these bold images. I took my inspiration for the card above from this gorgeous photo below that I had seen on Pinterest (see link below).

I tried to mimic waves on the water using my Wink of Stella clear glitter brush - kind of hard to see in the photograph, I know, but trust me that in real life you can see the glimmer! The colors I used to create this scene include daffodil delight, elegant eggplant, night of navy and rich razzleberry. The tree images were stamped using jet black Stazon ink.
Here's one more view of my card. If you haven't seen the retiring list, you'll want to head over to my Stampin' Up! online store immediately so you don't miss out on these fabulous products before they're gone!
