Elizabeth Silhouette

Hi -
I needed to make an elegant card for a an elegant lady - and this stamp from Clarity Stamp could not be more elegant!

This is Elizabeth 

- and she is a beautiful silhouette stamp. I stamped her in black ink and cut her out.

Using some silicon glue to give her some dimension, I matted and layered her up on patterned paper using Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Twenty and Fourteen which give a lovely frame.

I inked around the edges of the frames to add dimension.

I used the American Seam Binding ribbon

and dyed it yellow using the Mustard Seed Distress Ink:

I rubbed the ink pad onto my craft sheet, spritzed with water and dabbed the ribbon into the ink on the mat. A quick blast with the heat gun and it was ready to go.

I attached a strip of left over ribbon to a length sticky tape, leaving some tape sticking out the bottom. Holding onto the tape, I rolled the ribbon up to create a ribbon rose. I attach it to the card with two of the Crimson Cloud handmade black paper roses:

I used two of the Bird Flourishes Spellbinder dies to create the swirls behind the flowers:

To finish the card I decorated with some of my own buttons and pins.

Hope you like her!
