Silhouette Flower


This card is for a few challenges that have all coincided nicely.

I took the colours from ColourQ:


the composition inspiration from this month's muse Kathy's card at CASE Study:

the inspiration for the background also came from this week's Tuesday Trigger at Moxie Fab World:


and because I've used a silhouette die, it fits this week's cue word at CASology:


The background stamp is Penny Black Dots in Space.  I tried stamping the two colours onto different card then slicing into stripes and alternating, but it looked quite clumsy, and I didn't want to mask, so I cut a section off the stamp and just used that, stamping first in yellow then reinking and realigning for the second colour.

Penny Black: 40-144 Dots in Space, 51-008 Bashful

  3. This is super cool. I love the dots in the red and yellow, but think what great 'rain' they could make in blue and grey! Great combination of these challenges!
