Cameo Silhouette

Sunday, February 16, 2014

I love silhouettes. I really, really do.  This week's theme for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is Cameo Appearance. Admittedly, this is one of my all time favorite challenges.
These cameo magnets were inspired by not only by silhouettes, but also by vintage chalkware as well as old shell art.  A paper rosette nestles sweetly within the tart tin. The flowers were created by using Martha Stewart's Crafter's Clay.  I added a touch of metallic distress paint (I LOVE that stuff!!) as well as distress ink to the flowers after they had dried.
I created several of these with rosette variations. So much fun! This pair is a gift for someone special. I hope she likes them! What will you create for your "Cameo Appearance"?  Link your creations to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog for the opportunity to win a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp. Your work could also be chosen to be featured in our Designer Spotlight!

  11. Fantastic project filled with all sorts of eye candy! I love how you put the rosettes in the vintage tart tins. The use of Martha Stewart clay was brilliant and I love how they are framed in the circular branches. Another BRILLIANT (in caps) interpretation of the theme!

  23. WOW. How DIFFERENT and gorgeous! You always have something new and interesting, Michelle. Love that your silhouettes are not black. And I'm a big fan of shell art, like the old Sailor's Valentines. Too bad they're so ridiculously expensive!
