Sending hugs and prayers

The theme for the new challenge over at Addicted to CAS is: silhouette.

I used a silhouette stamp from Joy! crafts: 6410/0067.
the Sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp: friendship blooms

I made a panel with Schut aquarel paper and Distress ink refills.
I tried to make it look like the treebranch is in front of other trees where the blue skies still shines through...dappled shade ;-)...Does it make sense?
I liked the color combo (mermaid lagoon and mowed lawn) and I wanted to keep the colors down to a minumum because of the occasion.
It may have turned out a bit darker/brighter than I envisaged, but that's why I used the reinkers, for the vibrancy, so I should have known lol. Still like it though ;-)

I stamped both the branch and sentiment with Versafine black onyx ink.
Mounted the panel with foamtape and added a few Ranger enamel accents to connect the two
