This week's blogger challenge theme is silhouettes. I went with one of my favorite floral silhouette sets, Kind Deeds from Clear and Simple Stamps, and a past layout from Freshly Made Sketches (#18) in honor of FMS's one year anniversary. The layout was perfect for showcasing the classic silhouette image.
I stamped the set's large floral silhouette image on a white panel in green ink, then stamped the image again offset just the tiniest bit for a subtle shadow. The panel's layered on a tan mat, then set on a green card base. I debated using washi tape for the strip that runs across the card, but in the end, decided to go with a tan strip that matches the tan mat under the image panel. I stamped the "with sympathy" sentiment from the All Occasions 1 set on the strip in green ink and added a twine-tied button as an accent.
