Vintage Silhouettes

Good morning everyone! I hope you all are having a relaxing weekend so far. 

Lately, I find myself being drawn to silhouette stamps, especially vintage images. I don't think I've ever given them a second look before. Isn't is strange how our tastes change slowly over time? When I look back to when I first started making card, sometimes I ask myself, 'What was I thinking'?! lol. Now, when I see a silhouette stamp I have to display some sort of self control, I don't want to over do it.

Anyway, onto my card...

These darling images are from Rubber Stamp Shack. After I brayered a piece of paper with some pretty pastels, I stamped them in Versafine Black. When I know I MUST have a crisp, clear image, I always use the Versafine. It never fails me!


Hope you like it, thanks for peeking in today!
