New England Stamper: Vintage Dictionary Silhouettes

September 7, 2011

Vintage Dictionary Silhouettes

I just had to try the Colorful Silhouettes technique again with some Crafty Individuals stamps. The other two cards I made with this technique are here.

This technique is in the August/September edition of the Technique Junkies newsletter, but basically it involves covering a piece of c/stock with various inks, heat embossing a background in white and then embossing a silhouette image in black.

I covered both card bases with a vintage dictionary pages before mounting them main images.

Happy stamping,

The CI stamps work so beautifully with this technique. I love the colours off-set with the vintage dictionary pages, perfect balance.
