Silhouette Challenges #33

Hello lovely ladies and gents.

I recently discovered a new challenge blog  (well to me its new anyway) and guess what its only for Silhouette users yippee !!!! So whats it called then….


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

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

  1. This is beautiful Marie – how lucky to find this challenge, perfect for you. The LIM challenge this week is “silhouettes” so this would fit perfectly as your seagull is a silhouette. Love the acetate and shadow and the blue tones just finish off the card beautifully.
