Silhouettes are Pretty

Happy Labor Day everyone!  Hope you're relaxing or doing something fun with friends and family.  Because today's a holiday, I got to stay up late last night and and here's what I was up to.  I used Hero Arts' Three Silhouettes stamp set and embossed the images in black.  I used my Spellbinders to cut them out in ovals and backed each image with black cardstock.  Then I trimmed around them to give them a slight contrasting frame.  I stamped a brocade image in various colors and cut them out with Spellbinders Labels Four.   It was fun choosing colors and trying out different inks for this.  Using Brilliance pearlescent inks was the most stunning.   I cut pennant-like pieces in black to back each image.  I stamped the sentiment and adorned each girl with jewels.  I absolutely love how pretty and vintage-like these images are.  Above is the first image.
Here's the second image.
And here's the third image.
