Silhouette Girl with Bird...

Hello dear Stamper Friends:

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!...

For the people in Germany, specifically in Hagen (by Dortmund) I hope you had fun at the "Stempel Mecca" which is the stamp show over there. And I hope you got to see Linda, from "Lost Coast Designs' booth and got some of her amazing stamps and maybe you get to see one or two of my samples there at the booth...too :)
She was this week-end at the stamp convention "The Stempel Mecca" showcasing her stamps, if you miss it you can always get her stamps through her online store or wait for another show, I think next one she will be traveling to Oregon you can check her convention schedule at "Lost coast" web site...

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 thansk for spending a little time at my blog and commenting!

    Your card today is just beautiful. Love the style and the die cuts you've used. You truly are talented.
    I also received your little gift today and I was so very truly thankful for your gorgeous card and the stamps! You really brightened my day as my son left this morning to work away for a few months and I'm feeling a bit lost and lonely. It's so weird, he's my eldest and I know they have to leave sometime but was dreading the day he would.
    Sorry for going on lol.
    Anyway thank you so much!!!
    You are a good friend and very kind to send that to me from so far away!
    Lots of love
