Framed Silhouette

Hi!  Today's card was made using the beautiful Muse card as my inspiration.  I'm also linking it up to Addicted to CAS who have a cue word of "Silhouette".


I was inspired by Marilyn's warm background, black frame and silhouette images.  I started by sponging a mini layering stencil over white cardstock using various distress inks and then stamped my silhouette image.  I was going to mat that onto black, but saw my pierced rectangle frame dies and decided to go in that direction.  I used a black frame then a white frame, placed at an angle.  I then covered up most of the card and spritzed some Brushed Pewter Mica Spray across the bottom.  It is so beautiful and shimmery IRL.

Once I'd adhered that to a white card base, I sponged a scrap of card with Spiced Marmalade, Abandoned Coral and Carved Pumpkin ink and die-cut the word "hello".  I layered that onto a black die-cut, slightly offsetting it to make it pop a bit more.


Thanks for visiting.

I love this Karren, beautiful colours against the black. Stunning card.
Was hoping to enter these challenges but too yucky to worry about it.
