Default WT688 ~ Spotlight on Silhouettes (5/17/18)

Hello everyone and welcome to this week's WTUI Challenge... Spotlight on Silhouettes. Use a silhouette as the focal point on your card or project. You have no silhouette images...no problem...just use a line image and color it in with a black (or any color) Sharpie or marker. Can't wait to spot your stunning silhouettes in the gallery!

Here is my card sample:
A Mother's Love

Lisa, Sabrina, and Carla have more fabulous samples to inspire you...just check out the thumbnails below.

Here's a link to the WT688 Spotlight on Silhouettes Gallery

If you're not sure how to add a link, here's how:
1. Open 2 windows or tabs: one for your card in the gallery, and one for this thread
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Go to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE

Heart WT688 heading home

Reversed to black background and white silhouette for my card- pickup truck has a "big load" in the bed- my DD's coming home after finals for a short break- and a visit to the yarn shops I added a background of foliage (trees or grasses, you choose) and a woven trim "road" for my vehicle. Finished with a full moon for fun. Here's heading home

Heart WT688 It's Magic

Came back to do a pale purple hued cling wrap technique card- using lots of water- with Harry Potter soaring over Hogwart's as my central image- a photocopy from the internet. I added 2 showy bow/brad combos and a distressed sentiment panel. Here's It's Magic

Here is my WT688 - Fairy Tales! Loved the challenge, especially as I already had the silhouettes of the fairy die cut. Just needed some opportunity to use. Thanks for a great challenge.

I really wanted to play this one when it first came out, because I love silhouettes. But life happens, and I couldn't...so "better late than never," right? Here is my card: Sympathy for the Loss of a Brother!
