Craft a Scene New Challenge - Silhouettes

Over at Craft a Scene we have a new challenge and sponsor for the month of April.  Caroline from  Carolines Creative Stamps  has generously granted the design team some of her digi image files to work with and they have done a marvelous job of showing what can be done with Caroline's stamps to make a scene.  Hop over and check them out when you have time.

For my card I used the Silhouette Treetop Collection #1.  When you open up the zip file you will find dozens of images that can be combined to make your project.

Using the free program GIMP, I arranged the fairy on the tree branch and then added the circle to frame the scene.  It was missing something so I added the stars for the fairy to be gazing up at. I used my Spellbinders Large Circle to cut out the image.  Then I added Adirondack Stonehenge Blue to simulate the evening sky.  I figured the fairy wouldn't be able to see those stars unless it was evening. With my main image set I then proceeded to layer it up on the Bazzill card stock.
