Scrapbook Sisters Card Challenge 46 - Silhouette


This week the challenge over at Scrapbook Sisters is


I decided to go all old school, traditional, elegant and stylish and this digi stamp designed by the multi talented Gayle seemed absolutely perfect.

I can't decide if this is a Wedding or Anniversary card - I guess it fits either occasion!!

This was the first time I have ever coloured skin in greys - I was thinking old black and white movie here - did it work?!  She is coloured as always with copics and I added some Glamour Dust to her gloves, the bow and ruffle of her dress and her shoes

I used Theresa Collins papers and the postcard is by Echo Park - the placement of the dancers is to cover something very strange that annoyed me - on the postcard it says London circa something or other, when plainly the image is the Eiffel Tower!!  I tied a little Eiffel Tower charm on with some organza ribbon that is threaded through some lace.  The sentiment on the postcard is a Bo Bunny rub on that I have had in my stash for years - amazingly it hadn't dried out and went on just fine :-D  T roughed up the edges of the postcard and dabbed them with some Tattered Rose distress ink

Please can I enter my card into these challenges
