Happy Monday! It's Lindsey today sharing another card I made for Challenge Four using the middle row: silhouette, distress inks, and stacked sentiment.
I discovered that using a die was the easiest way to have a true silhouette, and the star of the show here is the Brushed Blooms die from Papertrey Ink. I had intended to use a pink silhouette on a white card base, but after die-cutting the flower, the white paper below peeked through the negative image, and I decided to switch gears. And I'm so glad I did! I think the change really allows the silhouette to shine. I used an inlaid die cutting technique here. This technique is so much easier now that I've watched Laurie Willison's video on using Press n' Seal to hold the little die-cut tidbits in place.
For my second element, I blended some Peacock Feathers Distress Ink in an ombre fashion, die-cut hello, and triple layered it. I wanted a more subtle stacked sentiment, so I stamped the second part directly onto the card base. And that's it! :) Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I've inspired you to try out Tic-Tac-Toe Challenge #4 for the first time...or again if you've already played along!
