Silhouette love

Hi there, Glenda here and today I would love to share some silhouette love! What I love about using silhouette stamps is that you can make such pretty backgrounds and let the gorgeous silhouette take center stage.  I made 3 different ATC's using the fabulous Viva Las VegaStamps!.  This first one is called "cherish" using the lovers kissing in boat stamps as well as the flying bird trio.
What I did was stamp the lovers kissing in boat stamp onto some white cardstock  that I had cut to ATC size.
Then I got out my handy dandy watercolor pencils and colored in the water and started in on the sky
and kept coloring using colors I thought would make a nice sunset background.
Then I blended in the watercolors
and then I mounted the card onto some black cardstock so it would pop more, added the flying bird trio, some gold stars and the word cherish.
The next card is called "Abu Dhabi 2015" in tribute to my recent trip to the Middle East. It was amazing!!!!

I stamped the Moroccan scene onto some white cardstock
and since my ink smudged all inside the stamped image I decided to cut that inside area out like shown below.  I also used my watercolor pencils to color in the sand.
Then on the smaller piece of white cardstock I misted it with some blue and orange inks
and the I glued the pieces together and also used the fabulous flying bird trio stamp again and added my words that I printed off from the computer and here is my finished ATC.
My last ATC is called "seek paradise" and it's another tribute to my trip to the Middle East using the fabulous camel and rider stamp as well as the seek paradise stamp along with some rub ons, clear tape and stickers.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my ATC's and as always I would love to know which one was your favorite!  I hope I've also inspired you to use some silhouette stamps as they are sooo fun!! I will leave you with a picture taken last month from my trip Abu Dhabi & Dubai!  This is me on a camel ride!!
 You can stop by my blog to see more pictures from my Middle East vacation here. Have a fabulous day!!

Love that middle one... I have the stamp, it came with a pound of rubber and I've never used it... Perhaps I should :)
