Game #210: Sketch + Silhouette

This card isn’t an exact interpretation of the sketch, but I’m going with it regardless. Using a new StampinUp stamp set called Kite Delight I picked one of the smaller kites and stamped it in dark red. I masked off the kite and then stamped the cloud from the same set. Then I stamped one of the trailing strings on a separate piece so I could fussy cut and only use a portion of the string. As I wanted my orientation to be slightly different after I fussy cut I turned it over and coloured the back side before adhering it flat. The little silhouette is from an old GKD set and I did some stamp surgery so she could hold the end of the string. Then from that same set I used the sentiment stamp that seemed most appropriate for the mood of this card. The kite flower centers were coloured in a sparkle gold using a Sakura pen and I also added some sparkle to the trailing string bows. To cut this panel I used a die from the mixed edge rectangles from Essentials after which I added it to the card front.

    1. I thought it looked okay although the girl could be bigger in my opinion. I find silhouette stamps a bit challenging at times.

  1. Totally creative and great take on the sketch challenge. I almost missed your silhouette girl because of focusing on that gorgeous kite.

    1. I knew the silhouette was a bit small but thought it would look like she was taking off so went with it anyway. Glad you like it.
