Silhouette Monday

That's right, silhouette Monday with the Friends of Speedy TV.  Today's challenge is to use a silhouette on your card.  I couldn't resist this new image from Ice and Snow.  This is a set that will be released this month by Mark's Finest Papers, A Heinrich Company.  Isn't it gorgeous, don't you just wish that you could take a stroll down that moonlit lane with your sweetie and hot beverage of your choice?  It's doing it for me!!!

I sponged my sky first and masked out my moon.  Then I stamped my trees and lined the path and some branches with my Versamark pen.  Finally, I embossed the Versamark with some Iridescent Ice embossing powder to give it that magical sparkle that snow really does have.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you will play along with us this week!

Details -  Stamps: Ice and Snow (MFP), Greetings of the Season mini (MFP); Paper:  Basic Black, Whisper White; Ink: Brocade Blue, Night of Navy, Tuxedo Black, Versamark; Accessories: Iridescent Ice ep, heat tool, scor-pal, stampin' dimensionals.

In case you are still with me...I wanted to add a proud Momma moment.  My mother and I took my daughter Christmas dress shopping and she was less than patient.  However, we did end up with a cute dress.  I goofed up the photo a little, but I also like black and white photos.  In real life, the sash and a third of the sparkling polka dots are red.  The other two-thirds of the polkas are silver and the rest of the dress is black.  She will finish the rest of her ensemble off with a black velvet shrug and some "Dorothy" shoes.  Thanks for indulging me!
