CCC #61...

Hello friends!!  Tuesday is upon us and that means time for a new CASology challenge!!  There were so many fabulous "apple" themed projects in the gallery!  This week the cue word is "silhouette".  Our guest designer this week is none other than the crazy mad talented Deepti!!   All the details regarding the challenge can be found here.



Silhouette... hmmm... many possibilities.  Initially I thought I would use my PTI Simply Jane stamp set for this challenge, but instead decided to go with the lovely floral images that are found in the My Favorite Things/Lisa Johnson Designs Peaceful Wildflowers set.  I paired the images with the MFT/Mona Pendleton Designs Distressed Background Blocks.  I used the Dynamic Duos color combo of Old Olive and Pacific Point, as well.  I love to layer stamps and so did a little of that on this card.  Layering your stamps allows you to create a clean design that has little or no bulk to it (unless you are like me and pop your main panel up using foam dimensionals!)  Card is pretty self-explanatory.  Decided to mount the panel on a black card base to make the colors pop a bit more.  Thought about adding a few sequins, but decided against it to keep things really simple.

Thanks for stopping by...I cannot wait to see what fun "silhouette" ideas all you super talented paper crafters come up with for this challenge!! In the meantime make sure you check out the cards from the rest of the design team: Melissa, Judy, Meghan, Ardyth, Gillian, Maureen, Kimberly, Jen and Tracey and our guest designer, Deepti.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white and black; Stamps:  My Favorite Things; Inks:  SU! Old Olive & Pacific Point; Memento Tuxedo Black
