Week 42 - Theme

Another week, another challenge.
Where do the weeks go to?
We saw some fabulous work on your beautiful One Layer Cards with minor variations of the interpretation of One Layer however. If in any doubt as to what we expect, just check with the definition at the top of our blog.

This week it's time for another theme which 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.


Here I used the same Hero Arts stamp which I selected for my Split Negative card a couple of weeks ago. This time its the complete stamp embossed on a black background using Heat it Up Snowflake Tinsel embossing powder.
The silhouettes on this one are from a Memory Box die, arranged in slightly closer proximity than on the die itself. The sentiment is from Penny Black.

This is in similar vein using all three of the deer from the Memory Box die. The trees are stamped from a Hero Arts clear set and have been twinkled with Glamour Dust. The background was embossed with Craft Concept's Starry Night embossing folder. This is a little more layered than usual but the design is still basically CAS.

For my first card I used a digi image from Stitchy Bear I saw it on one of our LIMettes blogs, Caro a while ago and had to have it. Isn't it just adorable!
I dragged the digi onto a blank document, then added the sentiment to fit onto the right hand space.
The font is Fontasia V2 here
I used the text box method, which we have explained in the past. I went over the 'Magical' with a zig glue pen and sprinkled with Glamour Dust for a sparkly effect. I also added glitter to the fairy wings. The top has a panel of Swiss dots and a cute little fairy castle charm tied onto the ribbon.

For this silhouette I stamped a silhouette style stamp from Stampin Up, Ornate Flowers, in black onto Melon Mambo card stock. I lined up the small stamp by eye as there were only 3 of them and the set I have is a cling which you attach onto a acrylic block, making for easy lined up design. I trimmed one edge with a scallop edge punch, also Stampin Up and then attached to a black card base. It is an A6.....Approx 15cm x 10.5cm. The gems are in an orange shade, from Doodlebug.

Have fun with your silhouettes we can't wait to see what you come up with.
