Less is More Silhouette

I'm having a crafty day, trying to get up-to-date with some challenges so that I can spend most of next week doing Christmassy stuff.

This week the Less is More Challenge is ...

Silhouettes
 n. silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a basically featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.




I had previously made the distress ink background - think I used Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade & Barn Door
Silhouette stamp is by Debbi Moore - Versafine Onyx Black Ink & Black EP
Border punch is EK Success

Can't believe I'm organised enough this week to get my entry in on the first day.  Will do my best to pop round and visit you all.

Thanks for taking a peek and a have a great week.

Suze xx

A perfect silhouette, really great card :)

Cath Wilson said...

That's a lovely card. I've just stamped a few of those images but I always end up SO disappointed with them because they don't stamp well enough to satisfy me. I even sanded them to help them take ink but it didn't do much good :-( Perhaps I need to take lessons from you. Mine were a birthday gift or I'd have sent them back, to be honest! Lovely card x
