Silhouette

Hi there!

One of my favorite things to use on a card is silhouette images. It works so well in a graphic design AND it's the perfect solution if coloring isn't really your thing!

I have 2 cards to share today featuring silhouettes:

The first one is a case of one of my own cards I made not too long ago, you can take a look at it here.

I just used a different stamp to create my background this time. Again a stamp from a Cas-ual fridays stamp set called BREATHE . 

I used 3 silhouettes this time. My card was inspired by the logo of the TV programme "the perfect look" on TLC channel. Take a look at the inspiration HERE !





For my second card I created the background using 3 stamps from the same set as above. Combining the words just, breathe, and it will be ok. After stamping it once, I turned the card and used the same stamps once more, upside down.

I added 2 bird silhouettes in 2 different sizes and shades of blue and finished off the card with dark blue enamel dots.



Both cards will go to the SILHOUETTE challenge at Less is more.

I am also adding the first card to the GIRLY challenge at The curtain call.

Thanks for visiting me today!

You are such an inspiration Hannelie. Awesome cards with the most perfect silhouettes and loving the background sentiments which create a fabulous effect. Thanks as always for playing along at Less is More - we so appreciate your contributions. Sarah x

The way you've used your stamps to create a background for your silhouettes is such a great idea. I need to remember that idea. I really like your bird silhouettes. I think it's because they're blue, so a little softer contrast to your white mat.

I recognised that CAS-ual Fridays font straight away - love how it's given your cards such a clean and graphic feel and those silhouettes are just gorgeous!

Vooral die 1e kaart vind ik helemaal leuk! Helemaal niet meer aan gedacht dat ik ook een stans met van die leuke kopjes heb.... Ook de vogels doen het mooi en beiden zijn met de achtergrondstempels heel mooi grafisch! (Je bent zo te zien in een goede "flow"!) Groetjes, Gerrina
