Hello everyone!! It's my turn to host the TLC and my challenge to you is silhouettes!!
I LOVE to use solid stamps to make silhouettes...they always look so elegant and classy!!!
There are lots of different techniques to create the silhouette look.
1. Stamp the solid stamps with dark ink onto light colored cardstock
2. Emboss the images
3. Stamp solid stamps with Versamark and emboss with white ep onto dark cardstock
4. Stamp the solid silhouette stamps on patterned paper
5. Stamp Versamark onto dark cardstock and emboss with clear ep
6. Do a resist technique with the silhouette stamps and then add color to the background by sponging or alcohol inks...watercoloring works, too, as do Glimmer Mist sprays
7. Add glitter to the embossing powder for a little glam
8. You can even stamp the dark, solid image, cut it out, and adhere to the background...what ever floats you boat!!!

And if anyone doesn't have silhouette stamps and still wants to play, Splitcoaststampers - Tutorials Scherenschnitte Stamping is another way round.
Just checking before work so I know what to plan to make later - it's a mad busy day, but I certainly hope to be along some time.

This was fun! Made me put away my copics and stop coloring digi images for a change. Funny how I get in a rut and keep doing the same thing over and over. Thanks for grabbing my hand and dragging me out of my box!
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
