Colorful Silhouette Rubber Stamped Card

I tried a new technique called Colorful Silhouettes and I LOVE it! It’s from the Technique Junkies most current newsletter. The basic technique is as follows:

1. Cover c/stock with several colors of ink.

2. Stamp a background, cover with white embossing powder and melt.

3. Stamp a silhouette image, cover with black embossing powder and melt.

It’s a bit fiddly, but so worth the results.

The first card is for today’s Gingersnaps Color Challenge, which I hosted. The colors to use are red, blue and yellow – the three primary colors. Check it out if you have a chance plus the rest of the Design Team‘s awesome work.

I’m also entering this card into a sketch challenge – Karen Giron’s Sweet Sunday Sketch. She always has great layouts. The main image in this card is from the SU set Just Believe and the background stamp is the retired French Script.

My second card was also made using this technique and I’m entering it into the Stamping 411 sketch challenge. Again, I love their sketches, but remember it’s an SU only site!
