Silhouette Challenge

Hello Readers,

It is the start of a new month which means a new challenge at House of Cards! Before I reveal the challenge here is my card for tonight, enjoy!


Word Cue Challenge:Silhouette



Isn't this challenge going to be fun!! I had so much fun that I made a set of 10 cards like this one but with different themes and colors.. As you can see a silhouette doesn't have to be black. In this case I decided to use white for my silhouette. I think it brings the entire card together and highlights the watercolor background. It just took a bit of blue masking tape, watercolors, and a few die cuts. Done...

I do hope you can join us this month at House of Cards. This challenge is going to be great and I am looking forward to see what you create! We will see you there!

All the best,
Shawna

Wow, I really love how you made your background! -- so beautiful and perfect with the seahorses! Splendid!
...thanks for your nice comment, Shawna. - so happy to see that you love my shaped card!
....we have cold weather too, but snow is a very rare thing here. I live next to the Atlantic coast no far from Bordeaux and our winters are often very wet and windy.
