Pocket Silhouettes...

For the recent blog hop you saw that I made a card holder and a set of cards - the tutorial that Jo (mainly flowers) came up with used the stamp set pocket silhouettes a set that I love and I was very tempted to use it on Sunday but I decided on the I heart (heart) set.
However got the set out anyway... I have been having a play around over the last few weeks with the babywipe technique there are two reasons for this 1) the effect that you get and how the build up of colour is very subtle and 2) I cannot use my brayer without the card looking like a deckchair - managed it once with the supervision of Helen but practice is needed and I will definately have another go at this in the next couple of weeks.
Over the next week I will be showing you a set of cards that I created Sunday night and they were very quick to complete - firstly I cut card to make the panels and then I babywiped the card to the desired colour. I then left them to dry. This was followed by stamping the panel with pocket silhouettes and adding the sentiments. I have used the colours soft suede, summer sun and melon mambo. I mounted the panel on soft suede and then again on melon mambo, I mounted this panel onto a card blank off centre and added a piece of melon mambo ribbon to the right hand side.
The sentiment is from curvy verses and one of the stamp sets that I earned with the sale-a-bration promotion earlier on in the year! Thanks for looking and your comments are appreciated Debbi x x x
