Here is my card Using -Summer Fence Silhouette
from Stitchy Bear stamps shop.

Here is what I did 
I coloured the background first using distress inks and my brayer I cut a hole in some card and used mustard seed (yellow) distress ink to do the sun leaving it fairly low in the sky as if it was going down! I also used Peeled paint (green) and Faded Jeans (blue) to colour the background, the as per my Tip below Printed the image over the distress inks once dry.

Tip: When printing a silhouette colour your background first and dry then print the silhouette, this way you avoid smudging, be sure it is very dry you can use a heat gun to speed the process up.
Here are a couple of other challenges I would like to play along with this week:
