spellbinders dance for joy

Ever since I saw this die it tickled my fancy (see the pooch nipping at the last girl's dress?). So I got it! I do love silhouette dies. And what to do with them? Well, there are several, albeit limited options. I went with the classic, black silhouette...

I pulled out an old inked and stamped-off piece that had some blues and greens in it, reminiscent of the sky and grass. I die cut it and adhered the silhouette to it, hanging it over the edge a bit for added interest. Then, cuz I didn't know what do for a background behind this piece, I decided to give an acetate card front a try. I really like how it turned out.

See the subtle stamped print in the BG? So unexpected, but pretty.


Thanks for stopping by. I'm stopping by at these fun challenges:
