Less is More

The challenge on Less is More this week is to use silhouette.  Now a silhouette is usually a block black image against white but this clever stamp reverses the image stamping a black background to give a white silhouette and as snow is forecast for later in the week it seems an appropriate image to use.


After entering last weeks one layer challenge I really have the bug so this week's entry is also a single layer.  I used my bone folder and the groove in my paper cutter to make the embossed lines.

I was hoping to show you the boxes I was working on (see WOYWW post) but I made a mess - yet again - so am going to paint over the sides and start again - gesso covers (literally) a multitude of sins.  So that's this afternoon sorted out.

Ah, a perfect entry for LIM, Ann - love this and have this stamp - at least that's one I can find this year, not like the eight I've lost!

I love the reverse silhouette effect that this stamp creates - lovely card, like what you did with your bone folder - simple idea but very effective. Agree with you re gesso - it covers all sorts of mistakes and lets you start again :) Elizabeth x #78
