SHOPPING OUR STASH #366 - Silhouettes

Welcome and happy Tuesday to you!
This week at
SHOPPING OUR STASH, we are looking for
Silhouettes on your projects.
I decided to use a gel print I made months ago, and didn't really like. 
But trimming it down and using it as a background to
my silhouette stamp changed my mind:

I shopped my snippet files for paper pieces to use and even
used a long neglected star border die. My card design is based off an
older sketch (#317!) from Sketch Saturday.

I hope you find some time this week to join in our Silhouettes challenge
at Shopping Our Stash! Need more ideas? Simply visit the blogs of
my teammies to see what they created, and leave some bloggy lovin while there.

  1. This is so different and I love it!!! fab. job love your take on the sketch. Great Shopping your stash.

  2. WOW!! Love that piece you didn't like for the background on your fabulous silhouette, I'm so glad you did't toss it.
    Beautiful layout too, it compliments your focal image perfectly.
    Great card.

  3. Yep, that background is perfect with your silhouette!!
    Awesome possum!

  4. Hey, Chris, this is so cool. I just love the energy that radiates from your image. Nice integration and wonderful tension between the light and dark areas of your design(particularly your white spiral side bar). I always save my "unhappy" gel prints to use as background images because they do have a way of becoming "focal images" when the right challenges come along. This is a great save and a beautiful gel prints.

  5. This is so cool! I love the colors you've combined, and that silhouette girl completely goes with that background! Rad card.
