365 Cards - Day 119 - Seeing a Silhouette & SAS Challenge #21

Today's challenge at 365 Cards is to create a silhouette of an image on your card. This might require some fussy cutting or coloring in a stamped image...



Ok - I cheated on this one - I did not have a silhouette stamp and I cannot even cut a straight line with a ruler so I turned to my cricut - I cut the girl from the New Arrival Cartridge and cut her belly off a bit - so I suppose I did do a bit of fancy cutting. LOL
I used the sketch from Stamps and Smiles - my first time at using one of their sketches.
Paper - Pink Petticoat & Funky Fairy's
Ribbon & Sentiment - Misc from stash.
Rhinestone - Kaisercraft
I have just realized I am another year older, it is 12.14am 28th June here in Australia - so it is my birthday - Yippee.....
Have a nice day and happy crafting.

I LOVE it...I had to read it twice when you said that you cut her belly off...me, one of the lone few that doesn't own a cricut.

Rose said...

LOL I used my cricut also for the cut today!! Love your paper :)

PaulaM said...

Fi, I like what you did. I am considering using my cricut too as I don't have a silhouette stamp either. Love the way you laid it out. TFS
