I printed the silhouette image in black on white cardstock. Then, to smear proof my sheet, I gave the image a light coating of matte finish clear spray paint. Then I went to work with some Stampin Up dye inks and an inking sponge. I think this image would make a stunning header for stationery too...hmmm...maybe I'll have to revisit that idea. Anyway, I mounted the inked piece onto black cardstock and then some smoky shadow cardstock from Papertrey. Stitching with my sewing machine finished off the blank space.
Check out the smoky shadow....doesn't it remind you of wool socks on a brisk fall day? Not too much longer and it will be time to pull those socks out of the drawer.
Thanks for stopping by today. I appreciate your visit. Also, I want to share a huge thank you to Scrapmaster's Paradise Color Combo challenge site. A top 5 spot was bestowed upon me for last week's card and it is my honor to wear a new badge on my side bar. Thanks Samantha!
