Less is More Week 42 Theme




Chrissie and Mandi at Less is More have set us a theme this week and the theme is:

Silhouettes
 n. silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene consisting of the outline and a basically featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black.

I couldn't find anything in my stamps that inspired me so I checked through my digis and images gathered from the internet and came up with a silhouette of the Paris skyline. 

The only thing I added was glossy accents to the silhouette and  gems in the corners. The font is Scriptina. I love the simplicity of the skyline. 
I decided to have a go at another card and chose a bridal theme.


I matted the image onto silver mirri and glittered her jewellery and bouquet. The base card is pearlised and I added organza ribbon and a pearl spray and a pearl for the dot on the i on a slightly crooked sentiment! I need a stamp-a-majig, hope you're listening Karen!!!!

I don't know which I prefer Val - they are both so beautiful! I wouldn't have noticed the sentiment being slightly crooked but I really believe everyone should have a stamp-a-majig!!! Vx
