Topical Tuesday #83 - Silhouette Shades

Hello all and welcome to a new Topical Tuesday!  This week I had to get a move on as it was my turn to put something together, and I haven't stamped in weeks!!  I had a 21st card to make last weekend which I did, but didn't have time to photograph would you believe lol!

This week I thought I'd go to one of our silhouette sets - Fanciful Flowers - and play with colouring and shading the silhouette images.

You can see the strokes of the pencils and I think it almost makes it look as though I drew the flowers...what do you think??  This is of course what a lot of stampers have done with character images, something I haven't tried as yet :)

To match my flowers I simply swiped the side of my white card base with DI Worn Lipstick then attached my top panels.

Here's my video for today, and I hope you enjoy watching!!

Have a lovely evening everyone!

Hugs for now,

  4. WOW! Love this beautiful card and the great design. The tutorial video is fabulous. I never concidered stamping with a color and then using my pencils over it. I'm so going to try this one. Thanks! You could enter this in the Loves Rubberstamps Challenge this week.
