Hi, all!
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!
