Wowza, Erika, your sunset is stunning! What a truly gorgeous card!


Rachel Carson - is one of my favorite people -- so her sentiment on this card makes my heart happy! She would have loved the cattails and the sunset feel of your card.


Erika, this is fantastic. And I agree with you, Rachel Carson made a big impact on our planet. Maine is very proud of her.

Ohhh Erika!!! HOW pretty!!! Great design.


Absolutely fantabulous, Erika!
Your sunset background has caused me to really take a pause and put learning this technique on my "must" list. Thank you!


Gina Hartzheim

This card is sooo beautiful. I remembered that sunset from before, I loved it then and love it now!! The colors and blending are awesome!


Simple is RICH! Love this card!


Elegant and stunning, Erika. And I like stamping them on top using black vs. doing the embossing thing. Great idea for when you just don't have the embossing powder at hand.


Oh this is so rich and elegant!!!!


Really beautiful sunset! Love this card!


Beautifully done! Love the silhouette look.


Stunning card, love it!

This is stunning...I love the silhouettes and your brayered sky is AWESOME!!!!


Wow!! I just wached your video on creating the background and it's pure genius! I could never get a very 'clean' look using my ink pads. The reinkers is perfect! Love it, love the technique, and love the card!


Pretty card. I viewed your tutorial, it was great! I am all thumbs with ink to brayer getting lines, and you made this way look sooo easy. Wow! I am going to try this way. Can we use any type of dye ink.
