Less is More wk42 - silhouettes

Ooh I was very pleased to see the theme for this week's Less is More challenge - I have a bit of a thing about silhouette stamps!  I'm sure I'll be back again later in the week with another attempt at this one, I could play with this theme all day (if I only had more time!).


I wasn't sure what I wanted to make at first, and then I remembered some test pieces I made when I was playing around with alcohol inks for a project for Papercrafts TV last month.  I'd never used alcohol inks before, just because I'd not got round to buying any yet, so this piece was just me playing around to see what I could do with them.

So I've used a piece of glossy card that I'd already created the inky background on, added a Flourishes stamp and then sprayed it all with fabulous Goosebumps spray - although you can't see that in the pic.  Sentiment is Stampin' Up and the pearls are from my stash.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:

Well I've had a very busy day, and we're running late with everything because Morgan had a party to go to after school.  So I'll keep this short so I can have some time for commenting, will catch up properly tomorrow :o)
