Silhouette Meadow Flowers

I picked up another bargain stamp in Hobbycraft last weekend...a different Hobbycraft...and the stamp is 'Silhouette Meadow Flowers' by Hero Arts. I've not used a silhouette stamp had a quick Google for ideas of how to use it, and found this fabulous project on the Hero Arts website. I used the same technique of stamping a background stamp first ('Music Backgound' by Hero Arts/BasicGrey) in 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, before stamping my silhouette stamp in Versamark, then embossing it with clear powder. Then, I carefully blended various colours of blue & green Distress Inks (Bundled Sage, Forest Moss, Peeled Paint, Salty Ocean, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky & Faded Jeans) over the top...I simply matted it on to kraft and 'Stormy Sky' Core'dinations card, and added a Penny Black sentment (from the 'Wonderful' set).
