CAS Watercolour September Challenge- Silhouettes

This months theme for CAS Watercolour challenge is to use a Silhouette with your watercolour.  I love silhouette stamps they pack such a punch against a colourful background.  Your silhouettes can be either die cut or stamped images, I'm sure you have something, so come on by and play.

For my card I used some of my watercolour tissue paper I made a few weeks ago adhered it to card stock using some 3 M spray adhesive and then stamped with a crows on a branch stamp from Katzelkraft.  I used a hexagon die to cut out the image and then again with a  hexagon die for the frame.


Come on over to see the design team and our guest designer is Birgit Egblom (Biggan at Split coast stampers)s amazing display of art work.

Your tissue paper background has such a beautiful mixture of the colors, Christine! The black silhouette does pack a punch against the colorful background. The hexagon framing adds interest to the card too. Hideko
