House Of Cards - Silhouette


     This month's challenge at the House Of Cards is to use a silhouette. I have gone rather traditional with a black and white image.
     I have a small stash of CD Roms from a few years ago, this image is from a Joanna Sheen disc. I have decided to print off a batch of images and papers and pop them in a box while I can still get my computer to run them. Many more updates and new versions of software and these discs will no longer work, such a shame when the content is so useful.
     The image is mounted on black card then onto a white card blank that has half covered with a lace backing paper. With the addition of some punched flowers in black and white with tiny gems in the centre and my stash raiding card is done.
     I like the bold simplicity of this silhouette, although for our challenge at House Of Cards it doesn't have to be black and white. Pop over to the blog and have a look at the DT inspiration, so many variations, I am sure there will be something to spark your imagination.


I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Boots - Something For The Lady
Come and Get It - Monochrome

  1. Rocky, this card is terrific! I love this idea! I thought "silhouette" would look beautiful with a vintage design, and the one you used is perfect! Beautiful and creative!
    Take care!
