CAS Silhouette- The Flower Challenge

Good Morning.

Time for more fun at 
Our theme this month is CAS; Clean and Simple.





My card came together quickly using one of my favourite silhouette stamps.
I began by inking up my Texte Grunge Embossing Folder with Distress inks, sprayed with water and pressed onto my paper.  Instant background.
Next, I placed the Clover Silhouette into my Misti and stamped it in black, then did the sentiment in the same way.
Finally, I diluted a bit of the same ink on my non-stick craft mat and flicked it all over my card front.



Please come and play along with us.
Thanks for looking.

  11. This is beautiful. Your cards are always beautiful. I think I have zero silhouette stamps. One day I will purchase at least one and hope I can come up with something half as pretty. [Bunny]
