Silhouette ThankYou cards

So, I was requested to make three Tae Kwon Doe themed thank you cards, I had actually been asked quite a while back, but life got hectic, and then (as mentioned in a previous post) I had to deal with a pinched nerve (three weeks and I still have numb fingers ☹️) anyway I had to have the cards ready by last Thursday and I needed to figure out how to make 3 cards in a night with limited use of my left hand. I decided to use my Scan N Cut to cut out Silhouettes and these are what I came up (bonus this card design actually yielded 6 cards)

Sailing Away Birthday Card ⛵️

Last month I had a card that demonstrated how to create an image with a silhouette stamp that didn’t look like I used a silhouette stamp, and today I am creating an image using a line stamp and making it look like a silhouette stamp, this particular card is a great masculine card.

To see last months Silhouette, not Silhouette card https://mymessycraftroom.me/2019/02/18/pink-black-eyed-susan-%f0%9f%8c%ba-birthday-card/

“Pink Black-Eyed Susan” 🌺 Birthday card

Well, I have another fun technique today, Believe it or not, the stamp used for this card is a silhouette stamp, not a lined detail stamp. It was pretty easy to add the colour and a little bit of detail to make these flowers look like they were hand painted as opposed to stamped. This is a technique that I learned quite a few years ago when I used to be a Stampin’ UP demonstrator. It gives a much different look to stamps you may already have in your stash.
