Silhouette

A thank you card today.
There is something about silhouette stamps that I just love.  This one is a Little Claire stamp 'Silhouette House Stamp', which I stamped with an onyx Versafine stamp pad on a patterned background.  I coloured the door with Sharpie pens.  The image is die-cut with a Memory Box Open Studio Stitched die.  The background patterned paper is from a Papermania paper pad.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Your silhouette card is wonderful! What a great stamp! Love how you used the black against the soft blue.

Jane Willis said...

What a beautiful card! One thing puzzles me though - the name of the stamp! Why is it called a cat tree?

Liz said...

It's not.... LOL! It's called 'Sillhouette House Stamp'! I must have had a senior moment writing my post - post now amended. :-) I bought the Cat Tree stamp as well as the House Stamp with a voucher I won from Little Claire's and I've been playing around with that one too this week, so I guess I had the Cat Tree stamp still in my brain. The Cat Tree stamp is beautiful too. :-)

I am totally with you on silhouette stamps Liz, they are so versatile and offer lots of options.

Your card with the LC image is lovely and the black really stands out against the blues.

Many thanks for joining in at Stamping Sensations challenge.

I love this delightful little house, and the black silhouette looks great on the blue background. The backing paper is really pretty too.
