Timeless Tuesday: Silhouettes

Yippee! Another Tuesday is upon us! Time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenge for Flourishes!

This week's challenge is brought to you by the talented Maki Jones!  Maki is asking us this week to use a silhouette image on our cards or projects (FTTC194).

For my cards this week I chose to feature the beautiful Flourishes stamp set, Sweet Days of Summer.  This stamp set is packed full of beautiful silhouette images to use.

Just Because

For my first card creation, I used some dark burgundy ink and stamped my little gardening girl onto a Spellbinder circle cut from Flourishes Classic White Cardstock.  I left the die on and then used a light dusty pink ink to ink the back ground.  I created my background for my image and then stamped my "Just 
Because" greeting from the Garden Picks stamp collection.

Speak of Your Gratitude
For my second card, I also used Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, burgundy red ink and an image form the Sweet Days of Summer.  The sentiment on this card is from the Country Charm Labels stamp set along with the ornate tag stamp.

We'd love for you to join us this week and create a fun card or project highlighting a silhouetted image of some kind.  Remember, you don't have to use Flourishes stamps to join in but we do love to see what you create with them!

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today…
