Today starts the new monthly challenge at House of Cards and for the next four weeks,
we'll play with Silhouettes.
I couldn't choose just one, so I show you some different ways to use this topic.
My first card is black and white with three die-cut birds sitting on a cord and watching the moon - all that on a reverse embossed card base. It was very simple to do!
For my second card, I used acrylic blocks and Distress ink for the colored squares.
Once dried, I stamped the image in gray and the sentiment in turquoise.
.....and for the fun to use one of my new stencils, I added some text using acrylic paint at the left corner.
On the third card, I used watercolor spots on wet paper.
After drying, I stamped the bird and then I continued the green line under the bird's tail outside the frame.
For my last card, I sponged at first the background with yellow and blue ink.
Then I stamped the yellow leaves. Next was the branch which I heat embossed in white.
After that, I stamped the birds at twice to get a darker image (and also some shadow *lol*)
Last I added a few splashes and the sentiment.
As you can see, there are so much possibilities to make silhouettes and I wish you great fun for all those you'll make!
Happy day to all of you!
