FS120 Sunset Silhouette

This is for Featured Stamper FS120 (although I'm a bit late!). I was inspired by this creation. I changed the sketch (and used the sketch from challenge TECC69), I changed the stamp set but stayed with a similar floral silhouette, and I also added some darker, more vivid colors to the original soft color scheme.
This background is all airbrushed. I am finding that airbrushing backgrounds isn't much different than sponging them in the way I mask. I masked of the green grass area at the bottom and sprayed it. I then sprayed in the pink circular shape for the sunset. Finally I sprayed the blue sky around. I stamped my images in Night of Navy. I thought it needed to be a little darker across the bottom so I sponged some Night of Navy there. I used my nesties to cut out the rectangle in the center and also for the scalloped corner. I matted all the images and adhered together to finish.
