Challenge #366 at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Silhouettes!!!

This week at Shopping Our Stash is ~~ Silhouettes!!! I'm thinking after last weeks "shaker" we needed something a little less complicated. I'm sure glad I had presence of mind to add a few dies to my trip to the cottage or I might have been really sad.

I love this stag die, it can be used many ways, the background was made with broken glass and peacock feathers distress oxide ink on my teflon mat and spritzed with water, so much fun to blot and drag the cardstock through it until you have what you like. As soon as I cut the image my bigshot quit working, I managed to emboss the white background but it's not perfect. 

Close up so you can see the background and the detail in the die cut.

Finished with a sentiment using broken glass ink.

Thanks for joining me here today and check out the Main Blog and see what the rest of the design team have made.

Very nice, Barb! The focal object just draws you in. I feel as though I should be sitting under a tree, off in the distance, just admiring this elegant creature!
