Who is in the Shadows?

Looking for something different to try???  There are some stamp companies that have been putting out some silhouette stamps lately and I thought we could make our Maggie stamps into silhouettes too!!!  Without looking at my supply list, can you guess which stamps I made into silhouettes on these cards?
I stamped the African sun (using this as a moon for these cards).  Since the images are going to be colored in solid anyway, it is not necessary to even mask.  Stamped the images and then colored them with a black Sharpie pen, water colored the "moon" with a little Weathered Wood Distress Ink and sponged around the edges with Faded Jeans Distress Ink.

Used Spellbinders lacey square and circle and one of the tags from the new grommet set.  Also sponged some Faded Jeans on the tag.  The Happy Anniversary stamp is a Studio G stamp.

Did you guess the right stamps?

They are:

Just had to add a few flowers too and used Doohickey dies:

Embossed one background with the Stampin' Up Tulip Border and the other with Cuttlebug Cassies Brocade embossing folders.  Sanded the embossed parts with a sanding block.  Added mini sun punched centers and rhinestones to the flowers and a little Stardust Stickles to the moon with white gel pen on the clouds.

You can find Magnolia stamps HERE at Diana's Magnolia-licious store.  Don't forget to look through her gallery on this website too.   There are tons of wonderful cards and projects to check out for inspiration.

Now a little challenge for you is to check out your stamps and see which ones might work good for silhouhettes.  Would love to see what you do with them, so please let me know!

Thank you for stopping by and you know I always appreciate the comments!

Enjoy every day!
