First Project for Fantasy Stampers - Challenge #7

Super excited to have been asked to join the Fantasy Stampers Design Team! This is a relatively new fortnightly challenge blog with the emphasis on stamping – as good an excuse as any I can think of to force me to give some of my many stamps a work out!!

The theme for Fantasy Stampers Challenge # 7 is ‘Silhouettes’. I have chosen to go with a tag and used the highly recognisable Tim Holtz stamp ‘umbrella man’ as my main silhouette. I decided to stamp and clear emboss him and then ink my tag – the emboss acts as a resist to the ink and adds a bit of texture as well. The other stamps are mainly by Tim Holtz as well but I have to admit I am unsure where the flower silhouettes come from – that’s a very old stamp from my stash.

For more DT inspiration do hop on over to the Fantasy Stamper blog to see what he rest of my teamies have been up to – link your project and we’ll be round to see what you’ve got up to this fortnight.

I am linking this tag in with  the Fashionable Stamping Challenges # 69,  the theme for which is also ‘Silhouette’.

Love your take on our challenge, hun - the resist technique makes a perfect silhouette.
Have a great weekend.

I like that you added flowers along with umbrella man because for one it shows you can use flowers with Tim's stuff and for another it fits since showers bring flowers. Great tag!
