A Silhouette Adventure

Isn't it amazing that when you look closely at both sides of the DSP you begin to see all sorts of different possibilities.

When I looked at the reverse side of one of the Perennial Essence DSP I saw a  beautiful night sky with fireworks going off in the distance and an idea was born.

This is what I came up with:

When I saw this pattern of the Perennial Essence DSP I knew that the silhouettes against this night sky would be perfect.

Two children, one pointing to the sky and the other playing a flute, were black embossed on this background.  The area around them was die cut with a stitched rectangle die and a Basic Black frame was placed around this panel.  This made it look like the children were standing in the doorway looking up to the sky.

I adhered this framed panel to a larger piece of the same DSP, and added 3 glitter die cuts which resemble bursting fireworks.  These I coloured with the Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend - just to make them  blend in a better. Strips of Basic Black card stock were also added along both long edges of this DSP.

The sentiment "Adventure" was die cut using Blushing Bride glimmer paper with a Sweet Silhouette die.  It was adhered to a piece of vellum card stock notched at both ends and then to the card front at an angle over the bottom of the image panel.

This entire unit was added to a Whisper White card stock layer which was adhered to a Basic Black card base
