Rainbow Silhouette

Good Afternoon,

I'm here today to share a card that I've made for this week's 'Less is More' challenge and their theme this week is to include a 'Silhouette.'  As this is probably my favourite style of stamping, I didn't want to miss this challenge and here's the card that I've made:


I started by streaking the colours of a rainbow in inks onto a blending mat.  I then brayered the rainbow colours onto a piece of silk art card before stamping my silhouette figure and raindrops using Versafine Black Onyx ink. After drying the ink with a heat gun, I took the colour out of the raindrops by painting them with bleach and then finished the card by adding the panel to white card stock and adding the sentiment.

All the stamps that I've used today are by Inkylicious.

I'm also adding this card into the folowing challenges:
Before I go, I'd just like to say a big thank you for all your get well messages.  I still don't have much of a voice but I'm sure that I'll be on the mend soon. Take care and enjoy the rest of your Sunday :) x
