Whisper a wish...

The Less is More Challenge this week is 'Silhouette', which is my favourite style of stamp.  The challenge closes soon, so I'm sneaking in my entry at the last minute this week!

The image and sentiment are by Little Claire.  I used Adirondack Red Pepper, Orange Sunset and Sunshine Yellow ink pads for the background and applied the ink using Ink Dusters.  The stamped image is die cut with a Creative Expressions Pierced Rectangle die and matted on a snippet of black card.

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

Liz said...

I think you might be right! X

Mrs A. said...

Appologies to the Hedgehog. I'm not the only one though. We had a new TV installed on Friday and the Sound Bar box needed to go on the bottom shelf where a large wooden ornament was standing. The installer said "well you'll need to move the 'pig ' out of the way to make room.
Pig I said? That's not a pig its a Cat!!!!! I rest my case.
hugs Mrs A.

This little silhouette hedgie is adorable contemplating his sunset garden. Love the way you've used the darkness of the silhouette image against the colors of that sponged sky. Well done! TFS & Hugs
