it's been awhile

Hi my friends.  Although I haven't posted any completed projects, it's not because I haven't been playing with my art supplies.  I've been doing bits on journal pages - a little on each page for backgrounds, but nothing completed.  I was reminded this morning that January is almost over!  Can you believe that?  And I have some challenges to do if I want to get in the prize drawings at OWSE yahoo group

So today, I decided to concentrate on getting a challenge or two done.  Here is my first one.  The challenge for this card is to use silhouettes.

This is a one layer card and super easy.  I made the background with distress stains - wild honey, spiced marmalade and barn door.  Then everything else is stamped in jet black archival ink.  All the stamps are from Cornish Heritage Farms (nature silhouettes and silhouette blooms I & II).  I also scribbled a little bit at the bottom with a black marker.  And that's it.  Done!  I hope you enjoy.  Thanks for visiting.
