Sweet silhouettes

Today's challenge was to use silhouettes, and boy am I glad it was because I have lots of them! I made two cards today. One for DRS Designs and one for There She Goes.

This first card features a cute black cat silhouette (is that Faith's Speedy the cat?!) just released by DRS Designs. You can find it here.

Supplies: Stamps- DRS Designs. Paper- Apricot appeal, black, white. Ink- barely banana, apricot appeal, real rust, versamark. Accessories- white embossing powder, dimensionals, make up sponge, scallop corner punch.

This card was made using the Here For You set by There She Goes. I love how dramatic silhouette stamps can be.

Supplies: Stamps- Here For You (There She Goes). Paper- black, barely banana, white, real rust. Ink- barely banana, apricot appeal, more mustard, versamark, black. Accessories- silver brads, white embossing powder.

Oh Jess both of these cards are wonderful. I know I love these kind of stamps as well and just don't use them enough. Great job TFS. Hope you and your family are doing well and business is booming. Take care.

Nice! I have such a hard time with silhouette stamps, getting the ink to cover evenly; yours are gorgeous!
