Card sketch #47 - Silhouettes



Here's sketch #47! A few diamonds and rectangles for you this time around! The card is 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.



I found this new online stamp store called Just For Fun Rubber Stamps. They sell mounted and unmounted stamps (just the rubber) and have a great eclectic selection to choose from. I really liked this wild flower stamp and decided to use it as a silhouette. The image is stamped in Memories black ink and embossed with clear embossing powder. I matted them with the coordinating paper that came in the soft serenity scrap pack from Provo Craft. I think I picked this paper up at Michael's a while ago.

I cut out some squares with my marvy punches and matted them with white cardstock and then turned them into diamonds behind the two main panels. I stamped the dragonfly in black and then added the magic mesh (drywall tape) to the top right hand corner. I have a whole roll of this stuff and always forget to use it. The two main panels are popped up on foam tape.

Supplies:
Wild flower stamp from Just For Fun Rubber Stamps
Dragonfly stamp from Impression Obsession
Paper from Provo Craft - Soft Serenity
White cardstock
Magic mesh or drywall tape (it's a lot cheaper)
