Floral Vine Silhouette

This week's challenge at Sweetstamps.com is to stamp a silhouette of some kind on your creation. I decided to use a stamp that is not really a solid (silhouette) type of stamp. I just stamped it in black ink and then colored it in with a black marker. The stamp is a Sweetstamps called "Art Nouveaux Verticle Border".


A very simple card which includes one of my favorite verses.


The background is painted with pearlized watercolors called "Pearlescent". There is a nice shimmer when held at the correct angle. The sentiment is a Bible verse from Verve Stamps (Ps. 46:10). And the little lavendar rhinestones are from Kaisercraft.

This is beautiful!! What a great idea to make an outline stamp a silhouette!! I don't have a lot of silhouette stamps, to I'm going to have to remember that!
