Howling at the Moon!

I am SO THRILLED with the outcome of this card!!

Over on SCS, the Wednesday Technique was SWIPED WIPE. This sounded interesting so I knew I wanted to give it a try but didn't get the chance on Wednesday. On Thursday, the "Ways to Use It" challenge was SILHOUETTES, another interesting idea but didn't get time to play! I thought about these two challenges over night and decided this morning that after my 8:00 a.m. doctor's appointment I was coming home and putting these two ideas together on one card!
The "swipe wipe" technique was easy! Since I just received my "Nature Silhouettes" set yesterday, I knew it was the one to use!!! The hardest part was doing a layout that would really focus on the silhouette and not be too "busy". After trying several different ideas, and this is what I came up with!
The recipe for this card is as follows:
Stamps - SU Nature Silhouettes, Stampscapes
Paper - Duplex hunter green/ivory cs, old olive, basic black, glossy white
Ink - Palette Noir Black, Reinkers: blue bayou, rose romance, summer sun & old olive
Other - Offray olive satin ribbon, paper piercer, baby wipe, Nestabilities, lg. sponge pod
Thanks for stopping by!! Please let me know what you think of my work ... good & bad!! There is ALWAYS room for improvement!!

  11. Your cards are beautiful! You are a inspiration to me. Now that I am working four days a week I am finding time to stamp difficult...too tired!

    I will try to do one of your challenges soon...

    Thanks for the help with my blog, too. I still have to do that, also!

  12. This card is absolutely beautiful. What else is there to say?!

  13. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving all those lovely comments. I put your blog on my blog list also. I have visited your blog before, but didn't leave comments because I left comments on splitcoast. I agree with you that you really get to know a person better by their blog. Even my daughter, who I'm very close with, says she is seeing another side of me through my writing on my blog. I really love this technique on this wolf card you made. I have yet to do this challenge. It can be so hard trying to keep up on all the challenges on splitcoast and the blogs I follow. But its fun. I love this image though! Its on my wishlist!

  14. You SHOULD be happy with how this turned out! It's AWESOME!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
