Silhouette is the theme for this week chosen by Kathy

Kathy's card

The card l have used this time is a Blue pearlised  landscape, and for the main image l started with a piece of Barbara Grays satin card, then placed a circle mask in the chosen position, then brayed with a very light covering of Faded Jeans distressed ink to make a night-time sky, then removed the circle and changed to the waste that l cut out the circle and inked with Scattered Straw, very lightly, afterwards just dragged a little of Faded Jeans to give the impression of a cloud. Once this had dried l stamped the grasses from my stamp collection - sorry can't remember who's - finished off by stamping a bird just on the edge of the moon.
Hope you like this card it was a pleasant change from colouring in.

Sheila's card

My card is A5 base card and first layer is black card trimmed a little smaller so as to create a border. I then added the peeloff borders and corners, my main image and background are from a Katysue designs book. I used a whole image as one layer and then chose the same image and cut on a diagonal and matted both layers on silver mirror card. I layered the triangle one over the complete image and placed onto my base card. The image of the two deers is also from the book, I simply matt it onto a circle piece of silver mirror card. I tehn added the sentiment and ribbon.

Kandis' card

Inside card

Hi folks, welcome to our challenge this week.  This week was silhouette which was Kathy's choice.  Now I am not too good on this theme and didn't have a clue what to do until Sheila suggested serif.  Well, the sky was the limit then as I LOVE designing cards in serif just as much as I like traditional card making.
I used an image from Joanna Sheen 'Dancing with Shadows' CD Rom and I then used Indie Chic digi kit from serif.  Hope you like this.  Thanks for dropping by.  Take care.
Chris' card

Silhouettes are so effective and can be used on virtually any project. I have a card to make for a 7 yr old so I've made this tag for it. As you can see, the figures are stamped and I've used a Spellbinders D-Lites die cut in black for the tree.


  1. I love Silhouettes and these are all fabulous.
