Silhouette Girl with Bird...


Hello dear Stamper friends:

Here Bibiana, with another card...Today I would like to share this card that I made using this whimsical stamp from "Lost Coast Designs" called "The Silhouette Girl with Bird"; that you can find in their online catalog in the "Silhouette" section and that Linda put as an example ...


I decided to play this time with 3 different backgrounds and mix designs... using blues and some browns tones...
On the base piece, I stamped "the Tree branches background", I tear the edges, fold the corners and sponge the whole with blue ink to give more definition to this base.


I used 2 spellbinders labels.
The "label 20" from "Spellbinders" was inked using:
"the stamp resist" technique: which consists in stamping the "concentric circles" background stamp with white embossing powder, heat emboss and then sponging over it with "pumice", "weather wood" and some "walnut" distress inks over it creating a resist...


Do not be afraid to mix geometrical designs, just play with the colors and the shapes and you get an interesting piece, maybe not to the like of more "Simple and clean" looks but you have to play around and find your style ...Art is very subjective, so anything is good as long as You like it!...


BTW: For the people in Germany, specifically in Hagen (by Dortmund) pay a visit to Linda, from "Lost Coast Designs' booth. She is this week-end at the stamp convention "The Stempel Mecca" showcasing her stamps, so go and check them out, remember you only can get her stamps through these special events or through her online store... and maybe you get to see one or two  of my samples there at the booth...too :)

Ok my friends have a nice day! Remember, I love to read your comments that I appreciate enormously, taking into account how busy life is nowadays...Really from the bottom of my heart thanks!

Stamps used: Tree branches; Concentric circles; silhouette girl with bird;
