Silhouette (Less is More)

 This challenge was a lot of fun. 
I have used many solid floral stamps in my card making but rarely use the silhouettes I have of humans.

 This card has the silhouette stamped with StazOn black ink. I then used my circle die to cut a circle on a post it. Using Distress pads of Mustard seed and Wild honey I sponged in the sun.
This is my submission for:

However I couldn't stop there...
Though this is not for the challenge I wanted to share. 
I cut another post and placed it on black card stock (who says clean and simple has to be white?). I sponged ColorBox white ink to make the moon. I did two layers of sponging letting it dry in between. Cutting another mask of paper to create the snow I sponged very lightly. Once all the white dried I stamped my image using black StazOn ink. The text is stamped using the ColorBox white ink.

Never limit yourself.
Think outside the box!

Both cards are beautiful. The black version has a serene feel to it and the white one is so happy.

Two wonderful silhouette cards. Love the choice of black for your second card, and your image on your first is so crisp! Great work.
Thanks for sharing with us.
