Default Finding Stamps

I couldn't figure out a title, because I didn't want to confuse you guys in the same manner I did Google. I'd really like to add some more silhouette stamps to my collection. And I don't mean those I could make with my Cameo!
You know, those where they stamp pretty much a solid image with little or no interior detail. I've been strolling the galleries and keep finding myself adding cards with that style image to my favorites. I've discovered Lavinia and could spend a bazzilion bucks there! However, I'd like some that aren't totally fantasy.

In the past my stamps have almost all come from Hobby Lobby or Amazon. Suggestions on sites to check out? Particularly those that might carry more silhouette type images? TIA

Try Viva Las Vegas stamps, Stampendous, and Just for Fun. There are plenty of others, but those are the ones that come to mind right now.

I think that both Sweet 'n' Sassy Stamps and Gina K have some lovely silhouette images. Also Penny Black.

Visible Image in the UK have some, and they ship internationally. My other suggestion would have been Lavinia stamps, but you already found them.

here is a thought, go squint at the stamps you own... if any of the profiles appeal to you. stamp it in black and fill in all the lines with black... and see if that will work?

Rubbernecker Stamps always had a good amount of silhouette florals. The Stampin Place has a lot of silhouette images in many styles.

Expanding on that idea, you could always use the backs of your photopolymer stamps to get a "silhouette" look. Just press the front of the stamp onto the block and ink the back. The outlines won't be nearly as detailed as true silhouette stamps, but it's a fun technique.

I bought these from About Art Accents many moons ago: Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts - About Art Accents - Art Neko - Antique European Victorian Silhouettes
and I'm looking at these: Rubber Stamp and Paper Arts - About Art Accents - Art Neko - Silhouettes of Children (11). You can buy the images individually, as well, and they can be purchased as bare rubber or with cling mount (although that option practically doubles the price). there are other silhouette stamps, as well, but those were some of my faves...

Even though they're working on a new website, if you click on the catalog link in the blurb about the new site, you can still add things to your cart and check out and everything...
