Cactus Silhouette

Doesn't that just warm you right up? I grew up in Arizona. So probably now, many of you are thinking "desert."  Most of Arizona, is desert, yes. But I grew up in Northern Arizona, in Flagstaff.  However, at this point in my Nebraska winter, I am longing for the desert heat of my home state.  And so the best I can do about that is to make a card that depicts what I am missing!

I made a sheet of "sunset sky" using the Ink, Spray and Smash technique and then stamped my image. I used Cactus Silhouette by I Brake For Stamps for my image.  I stamped it with Neptune VersaColor and then embossed with Eggplant Embossing Powder. I have seen many Arizona sunsets that look just like that!

Hope it's warming up where you are!


  1. WOW! What a fabulous card! I don't normally go in for these type of images myself, but this is GORGEOUS, and certainly warmed me up - it's quite bright and sunny here in the UK but still cold in the wind.



  2. OMG Judy - this is sooo beautiful! i am sure even if I tried I could not make one as beautiful but I am definitely going to have to check out this stamp! Thanks for sharing this fabulous work of art :)
