Fantasy Stampers - Challenge 7

Good morning crafty friends and followers,

Just wanted to say a huge 'Thank You' first to everyone who visits and leaves me such kind comments about my work - they are always very much appreciated and do truly make my day better.

Now, onto the next challenge over at my very own challenge blog


For the next two weeks we would love to see your projects using

I can't wait to see how you interpret this one - will it be the traditional black silhouette, or do you have another idea to share (but remember, you must include some stamping).  Here's what I made for my DT inspiration ...

I think I kept it reasonably simple this time - using just two or three techniques. My main silhouette stamped image is from a Stampin Up set called 'Serene Silhouettes' - I stamped in archival black ink, then masked the moon out and added some 'Broken China' and 'Dusty Concord' distress inks using my inkdusters. Then I decided to cut the circle into four uneven pieces before mounting them on a black scalloped circle.

The background started out as a blank piece of coconut white card - I stamped across the bottom with my archival ink using a Clarity foliage stamp. Then I embossed the top section and added a littleco-ordinating ink to highlight the edges. A simple sentiment and a few drops of Perfect Pearls around the circle to finish.

I hope you will come and join us with your 'Silhouette' projects - why not pop over to the challenge blog and check out the fantastic work my team made (we also have a brand new team member this month).

Big hugz, Jan xx


  1. I hadn't realised you had embossed the background at first, thought it was stamped! Love the idea of the cut up circle. Hope the sun is shining where you are as it is here. :)


Your comments are always very much appreciated, so thank you for taking the time to write one xx
