Default TLC383 ~ Make Your Own Silhouettes ~ (6/25/12)

Hello everyone!!! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!! Are you ready for a little stamp therapy??? I have a super fun challenge for you this week!!!! How many times have you wanted to use a silhouette on your card or project but just didn't have the right solid stamp?? Well, I have a solution to that problem....make your own silhouettes!!!

1. First, pick out your stamps...you can use any stamp you want...solid or lined
2. Stamp it on the back of a piece of patterned paper...the darker the paper the better! That way it looks more like a silhouette but use what you have.
3. Cut out the image and adhere patterned paper side up onto your cardstock...you can use several images or just one...what ever trips your creative trigger!!!
4. If you don't have the perfect stamp, you can use a die
5. If you don't have a die to use, cut out a picture or object from a magazine and place it on the back of the patterned paper as a template.
6. Cut out an image from a picture ( it would be fun to use your children's picture) and use it as the template.
7. Be creative and have fun!!

My Sample:

Silhouette Garden

Remember when uploading to use keyword TLC383 (no spaces)

You can view the entire TLC383 Gallery Here


Happy Stamping!!!

Bird Silhouette by TrishG - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers



Another way I have seen people make their own silhouette is to stamp the image, then color it all in with a black marker (ie. Sharpie).

Smile TLC383 Laugh Your Cares Away

Joan- thanks for the great challenge, makes me use new stamps! I got out my "new" Wild Things set from SU, and combined it with SU's Farm Life for my wheat field. Added a bright brad/flower combo, and a flower shape with a map. Here's Laugh Your Cares Away!

Default So much fun!

Fabulous challenge! Here is my card: to You from me
Mine is a light silhouette with dark background.. hope that counts? In a bit I will do another version with dark leaves on a light background. This is what happens to me when I read the challenge while watching re-runs of Gray's Anatomy =\
