The Less is More challenge on Saturday was at theme.....
n. A 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 need a Birthday card for a special brother-in-law. I think this will do.
The frame is embossed using a small wood frame from the craft store. By placing the cardstock in the embossing folder and adding the frame to the sandwich, it leaves the center unembossed. (Is that a word?)
I masked off the plain area with sticky notes. Then I inked the trees in Soft Suede, stamped off once on scrap and stamped. Stamping the deer in Early Espresso took care of the silhouette that I needed for the challenge. Sponge daubers and Stampin' Pastels finished the design off. The silhouette is not black but I hope it's dark enough to be considered a silhouette.
Here's a closer look.
Stamps: Lovely as a Tree, Winter Post
Ink: Soft Suede, Early Espresso
Paper: Very Vanilla, Chocolate Chip
Other: Big Shot, Square Lattice EF
Most of the leaves are on the ground now so the ground is very colorful. I love the way the fallen leaves smell and the 70 degree weather is pretty nice too.
I'm so glad you stopped by.
