Sweet Silhouettes

Friday, February 15, 2013

The Shabby Tea Room is hosting a "Sweet Silhouette" challenge to use a silhouette as the focal point.  I love silhouettes!  I always have.  In fact, when my children were babies, I was lucky enough to have Tim Arnold, who is considered America's premier silhouette artist, craft silhouettes of my sons.  He is amazing!  He will sit and look at his subject, and then start cutting free-hand.  It is incredible! 

This card was created with a stamped image from Hero Arts. I fussy cut around it, adhered it to a antique book page and added a vintage flower. I used gold, dreden foil accents on the card. I love the pretty foil pieces, but they photograph horribly. I also used some Martha Stewart glitter paint to dress up the chipboard frame.  I do love glitter!
