Silhouette scene

This is one of the best cards I've made, but I enjoyed making it. It's been a difficult day, so I felt I needed to play with inks and this is what I came up with, using some new Clarity stamps (will come back later with the names of the various stamps I used, but want to get this posted now) and a brayered background using a rather smeared Adirondack stained glass (I must buy a new one). I didn't do the brayering very well at all, but I quite like the rather misty look it created, so I decided to stay with it.


This was prompted by City crafter 91: back to black - using any black silhouette image, also Quirky crafts 2 2012: silhouette, Make my Monday 32: create a scene (nature(,  and Craft a scene 1: anything goes (must be a scene).
