Sayonara Silhouettes

Another long-time favourite stamp set that is retiring at the end of May is Pocket Silhouettes.  This was another one of my very first purchases when I first started stamping.  In honour of its retirement, I created this super-simple card...

Single-layer card featuring the soon-to-be-retired Pocket Silhouettes set.

This design was inspired by several I've seen on Pinterest...if you're not on there yet, you need to be!  So much fabulous inspiration!  Here is what I did to put this together:
Starting with a whisper white card base, I masked off a section in the middle using self-adhesive notes.  I then sponged the background using lucky limeade, pool party and island indigo inks (gotta love those in-colours!).  I then stamped the floral image using basic black ink.  Removing the masks, I added the score lines using my Simply Scored scoring tool.  The final touch was the little pennant which I hand cut after stamping the sentiment in black on a scrap of whisper white.  I added a black brad and adhered it to the card with a dimensional.
If you don't already own this fabulous set, here is the complete artwork:
