Silhouette Challenges

Double yippee as its anything goes and as I make mainly cards using my Cameo this is just perfect for me.

I used a cut file from the silhouette Studio and black card to cut the image, that was the easy part, I then removed the compound path ( Silhouette users will know what am talking about lol ) and added colour in between the black lines using the advanced colour settings. It was printed onto acetate along with the sentiment then the black frame was layered on top, popped up on foam and then added to a white card base.

I love the finished result and it looks much better in real life honest,its always a challenge trying to photograph acetate but I love the shadow effect you get if you pop it up with foam. I think you may just be able to see the shadow of the bird if you squint your eyes up and cross them a little, well that’s what I did anyway !

I’m so excited to find Silhouette Challenges and do hope you will pop on over and see all of the wonderful entries in the gallery so much inspiration.

Would also like to link this up to Less is More as my 2nd entry for their Silhouette challenge

LIM for blinkie

Also linking to Try it on Tuesday who also have the theme Silhouette and lots and lots of inspiration from the design team and in the gallery

Take care

Less is More ” Silhouette “

Hello lovely ladies and gents !

Popping in today with yet another shaker card, as I mentioned in my previous post I’m addicted to them at the moment so until it passes I’d like to share another with you all.

As many of you know I have another addiction one that I have had for several years . In this case though I don’t want to kick the habit , so I was especially pleased when I saw the new recipe was over at Less is More.

SILHOUETTE

I love my Silhouette machine and I love Silhouettes and Less is More being one of my favourite challenge blogs ……….

For any of you that don’t like creepy crawlies now is the time to look away.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED !

A match made in heaven as far as I’m concerned.

So of course I used the silhouette  Cameo to make my silhouettes and print the sentiment ,adding acetate , patterned paper and sequins to make the shaker part. I cut another beetle from black cardstock and popped it up to give dimension .

Do pop over to Less is More as there are some amazing cards in the gallery and from the DT.

Wishing you all a wonderful Sunday

Take care

CASology ” Clear “

Hello lovely ladies !

Its time for a new challenge over at CASology and as you can see by my post title their cue card this time around is

Week 181 - Clear.jpg

So many possibilities for this one but I’ve gone with using transparency film and making a shaker card. Its not too much of a stretch to say that I’m fixated on making shaker and window cards and have been for the last few months.

I used and image and sentiment from the Silhouette store and cut the leaf using my Cameo, I added transparency film and then filled with sequins and seed beads and used some patterned paper to seal the deal !

Do pop over to CASology as once again the DT have pulled out all of the stops some amazing cards in the gallery jam packed with inspiration.

Take care
