Simple Christmas Card.


 n. silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a basically featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.



I made this card on a 20cm white, square card. The image is called "lets play" from Penny Black which I bought 4-5 years ago in the Jan sales. I used a black ink pad to stamp the image and then black embossing powder. I added the gems to the background, matted on black and then silver card. The stamped sentiment is from a Papermania set -Henbury Lane. Finally I added the organza ribbon. 

After the positive comments from last weeks "leaf" challennge from Less is More I felt inspired to have a go at this week challenge- Silhouettes. 

I am also submitting this to the  Black, white and one other colour challenge at Marks Finest Papers Blog . I am counting the silver as my other colour- hope that's okay!?
