My Time to Craft #284 'Silhouette'

Good afternoon, all! I hope your Saturday is going well! I have spent the day helping to do lunch for 12 couples attending a 'Marriage Preparation' course at my Church. My friend Hilary brought along baking potatoes, chilli con carne, two trifles and some cupcakes! She is an amazing cook! I brought along a teatowel.... It was really enjoyable, a great chance to catch up and have a good natter! Now I'm home with my feet up and a cuppa made by my lovely hubby.

So that's why I haven't yet blogged the new Challenge at My Time to Craft which this week is to have a Silhouette as your image.

I have a set of silhouette stamps from Indigo Blu and I set them out on my Fiskar's Stamp Press to make the scene and sentiment I wanted, then stamped in Versafine Black Onyx Ink.

First I stamped on some old pink patterned paper and added pink flower sequins:

Then I stamped on lilac patterned paper and added black flower sequins:

Both dragonflies have Wink of Stella Clear added to their wing.

I can't decide which I like best, so I've included both. Once the slightly fiddly business of lining up the stamps was done, these were very quick!

Now go and see the varied and lovely creations that my teamies have made, you'll be inspired to join in!

Thanks for looking, and have a great weekend!

love Mags B x

Hope you have a nice relaxing weekend!
