Skater Silhouette

A little something different today. As I sat down to stamp yesterday I wanted to try something "out of the box" and since we got a HUGE snowstorm here Sunday night I felt like using the cute Gliding By image from Paper Pretties.

So I stamped the image and then I colored her completely black - YIKES! I thought I'd try a silhouette type look! What do you think? I did a bit of distressing around the edge of the oval as well as on the edge of the dp (which is super fun October Afternoon and for your music lovers that "need" to know - the song is Winter Wonderland). :)

Since the card was taking on a vintage-y feel I did a quick search for crocheted snowflakes and found this page with several great patterns. I made a couple, but this one is #6 and I liked it the best. I added a button to the center from my vintage button stash and an October Afternoon rub-on on the bottom.

Cardstock: Black, Vanilla (SU!), Patterned Paper: October Afternoon, Stamps: Gliding By (Paper Pretties), Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), Frayed Burlap (Ranger), Accessories: Button, Vanilla Grosgrain (Papertrey Ink), Gingham (My Favorite Things), Nestabilities, Copic marker, Dimensionals, Black Brads, sponge
