Tango Silhouette

Silhouette toppers are deceptively versatile. You can either cut them out on your digital die cutting machine (like the Cricut) or buy them ready cut.
I love the dancing shows that are always on tv at the moment, so for this card I chose an image of my favourite dance - the Tango! 
Although my first instinct is to cut a silhouette out in black, I thought it would be fun to see what I could do with different colours - and of course red is definitely the colour of passion - ideal for the Tango.
Once I had cut out the dancing couple, all I needed to do was die cut the circles and scalloped circles (using Grand Nesties) and mat and layer the shapes. I added some texture by embossing the black circle with the Floral Embossing Folder from Creative Expressions.
I needed something else to complement the dancers, so I die cut some swirls and Carnation Creations from Spellbinders for the flowers.
I kept the colours simple, just black, red and white so that the eye is drawn to the dancers.
This is a fun card and ideal for any fellow Strictly lovers!
