Introducing Day 3, Just Because

It's day 3 of the May release over at Uniko.
Today I'm showcasing the Just Because stamp set. There's also a fab script stamp out too.

This simple card uses the silhouette from the set and a sentiment from Simply Said Blocks II.

On the front of a white base card I stamped my silhouetted bloom and embossed it with semi dull EP then masked off the area to be inked. The golden sunset (hope this counts as gold for AAA) was made by adding a mix of Fossilised Amber, Spiced Marmalade and Abandoned Coral DOx, blending as I went. The ink was carefully rubbed away from the embossed surface before splashing a few drops of water over the inked background.
Carefully removing the masks, I stamped and embossed the sentiment.

For more inspiration checkout the rest of the DT.
