Sunrise Celebration


Hi, this is my 2nd post as a guest for Addicted to CAS. It's been great fun, thanks again to Kylie and the team for the warm welcome. I hope you can join in with this fortnight's code word Celebrate.

I've had this stamp set for quite a while and hadn't used it. I love how carefree and happy the little figures look. 
 I stamped extra trees on the left to create a frame and thought a sunrise would highlight the silhouettes.

I'm also linking up to the challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More where the theme is Clean & Simple.

Materials used:
Flourishes Kids Play and Hero Arts sentiment stamps; Versafine ink and clear embossing powder; distress inks.

Hope you have a great weekend, thanks for visiting,
Cathy x
