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!!

Thanks, Joan, for another fun Monday challenge. I probably took the easy way out and used a die.........but I appreciate you giving us that option. : )

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).

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!

This is such a clever idea. Why can't I think of these things? Anyhoo, here's my own silhouette: TLC, CAS In The Wild by angelsparkly - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

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 =\

This challenge was so much fun, that I had to play again!
