Double D "Silhouette" Challenge!

It's time for our second challenge of the month at the Double D Challenge Blog.  We did a full swing for this one and went from bright neon colors to dark colors.  Dark as in silhouettes.  And that is the theme for this new challenge.

"Silhouettes"

We'll be giving away a fun prize for this challenge to one lucky player chosen by random.org.  Everyone is welcome to play along because our prizes ship internationally too!  Here's the prize being offered....

 Silhouette Kids from Frantic Stamper Inc.

In addition to the prize offered, the Design Team will choose a Top Creative Winner and Top 3 from all entries.  So, please join us at the Double D Challenge Blog for our "Silhouettes" Challenge.  You could be one of our winners!

And, here's a mood board to inspire you...


A silhouette is the image of a person, animal, object or scene represented by a solid shape usually in black.  I have a  rooster die cut that I have been waiting to use as a silhouette.  When the sun begins to rise and the rooster crows, he looks like a silhouette against the horizon.  

Here's my silhouette inspiration for you...

"You have a beautiful soul"

Designed in my typical 6 x 6 size, I love how this card turned out!  The base is black cardstock with a rust color matting under the patterned background paper.  I added lots of layers using tags and die cuts.  The rooster and wreath silhouettes pop against the lighter colors.  A rust double loop bow, blue pearls and twine pull out some of the background color.
