Silhouettes I think I'm hooked

Hi crafters,

I think I am hooked on these at the mo. I have made two more silhouette cards, I had made another one but I went and ruined it by adding too much and it ended up in the bin.

In both cards I have used Inkadinks to paint the background.
To create the background I used torn paper as a stencil for the hills and a piece of paper with a hole punched out to use as a stencil for the sun. Simple.

I stamped a tree in Stazon.
I used a tree stamp from the KanBan range of clear stamps.
The bushy look was created with a stamp from the Laura Ashley Collage Stamp Set by Trimcraft. 

I used the same stencils as before in this card but as you can see I have created a very different background. To create the look of the water I used a Rigger brush (Fine line brush Size 1). I turned the pic on its side and used an up n down loose flicking motion with the brush until I got the look I was after. 
the rest of the images are black silhouette peeloffs

Hope you like them .

Sue, these are gorgeous. I've got a brayer to try and get this effect, but I'm scared to use it!!!
