Pocket Silhouettes

Hi Everyone, it's Friday and the first week back at school is over.  Next week all the activities start up again so I've been writting up my calendar with times etc.  Just need to remember to look at the calendar! Lol!

My card today is for the Simply Stampin' Challenge and for this week it is to use the colours - Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Early Espresso and Pacific Point.

For my panels I've used Pocket Silhouettes and repeated the image.  I tried the baby wipe technique for stamping the flowers, however I don't have any re inkers.  So instead I picked up colour on my wipe from the lid of my ink pads, after giving them a good squish.  I think it would be stronger colours if you used the re inkers.  I used both the Pacific Point and the Pretty in Pink, although you mostly just see the Pacific Point.  I stamped directly onto the wipe then onto the Whisper White panels.  I then tore the top edges and sponged Pretty in Pink along the edges adding extra to the bottoms to ground the image.  The panels were mounted onto Pacific Point and attached to the base card.  I made a label using the Decorative Label Punch, the 1" Circle Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Punch.  The sentiment was made up from the two sentiment stamps that are included in this set.  A little bit of Early Espresso ribbon finishes off the label.

Thanks for taking the time to visit. x
