I just love the Stampin' Up! range of silhouette stamps that they have in the Idea Book and Catalogue. A few days back I posted a photo using this technique. Here are the rest of the cards I made.

I simply found some photos of sunrise/sunsets from our personal collection and stamped silhouette images over the top with Basic Black ink. It's a very effective technique that I found in a recent card making magazine.

I think they would make great Sympathy cards or for general use. I purposefully didn't put sentiments on most of them because I thought it spoiled the images.

My hubby took these magnificent photos.

Have an awesome day!! It's my last day of the holidays before I go back to teaching tomorrow. I've decided to start a class blog with my grade 5/6 so they can share their creativity with the world!

Smiles, Bron :0)
