Default TLC673 ~ A New Way to Silhouette ~ {1/15/18}

I am so excited to host the TLC challenge today.
This is a super creative group so I have been searching for a fun technique for you.
I hope you like it!


Silhouette stamps are becoming more and more popular and while I have silhouette stamps that I love to create with, today we are thinking outside of the box (or inside the lines LOL) and we are going to stretch the outline stamps we have in our stash.This technique will work for rubber stamps or digital stamps so look at all the images you have…

This was so fun and really easy!

  • Step one – create a background. This can include a night sky, a sunrise, a blended background, a“smooshed” distress ink background, and so many more – you choose. I first decided what background I wanted then found a stamp that would coordinate with it. I sometimes work backwards so do this your own way .
  • Step two – the image. Think flowers, leaves, people, so many things would work. Either it is already printed (a digi – see note below) or you need to ink it up and stamp it (in black ink) onto your background.
-Note: when using digital stamps, you can actually print out the image first and create a background over it without worrying too much about masking (easy right?)
  • Step three – the secret weapon. Using a black Sharpie, color inside the lines of the image until you have filled it in fully. If the artist has drawn outside of the main image (wisps of hair for example), leave them as they are – they add to the authenticity.
  • It is now a silhouette!
To show you how versatile your stamps are, and how awesome this technique is, I created two cards. I recreated the same background and added my outline stamp to both. I colored one up with color pencils then the other with my Sharpie. They both make me smile and are both effective… but how different right?


Here is the Colored Version:


Here is the Silhouette Version:


Here is a link to one of my inspirations for this technique -


HERE is a link to another silhouette tutorial based on German paper-cutting techniques.

I also Googled “stamped silhouette backgrounds” to get background inspiration.

My Sample: Birthday Reaper

I hope you have fun and I can’t wait to see what you do!

What a great, innovative technique! I am so happy to be back after MIA from SCS due to an unexpected major surgery. So glad stamping doesn't require too much heavy lifting

This was such a cool challenge and gave me a way to use a stamp I found too “cutesy” and had never used! Great new way to expand the versatility of our collections!
