Silhouette Village

I have a Christmas card to share with you all tonight - I started it yesterday and finally finished it about 20 mins ago!! So much to do in between - such as decorating the house ready for the kiddies (none of which have turned up as yet!)

I wanted a slightly more masculine creation, but still with the Christmas spirit, so I went for bold letters, striking silhouette and funky background. I was going to use a different colour circle behind the black, but my others were too small and the parrot had gone to bed so unable to cut anymore as the big shot is in his room!! So the male will just have to like pink lol.

To start with I used a stencil that I got recently in one of the papercraft magazines. I dabbed versamark onto the house part of the stencil and then heat embossed with Papermania Seafoam White embossing powder. Then I applied versamark through the stars and added some yellow fine glitter to this area. I did heat set this, but I may need to spray with hairspray also! I then added some liquid pearl in red to give the scene the christmas feel. I layer the two scalloped circles together and added two present toppers. Finally I wrapped natural twine around the top and placed the letters over this for the sentiment.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

I would also like to share my tomato harvest, and my recently dug bed in the garden!

I  have increase the volume in the punnet this afternoon as I have taken the plants out of the greenhouse and so stripped the tomatoes off them!

Thanks for looking - hopefully before long I can show the bed planted with the ferns!

  4. Usually when you think of a silhouette you think of black, but you completely inversed the concept of silhouette!! I love it. Thank you so much for joining us at The Male Room!!
