Gothic Arch Challenge - Silhouette

Great theme this week on Gothic Arches! I don't have many silhouette stamps - the ones I do have are mostly birds. I loved the tag I made last week using Grungeboard and thought I'd incorporate that idea into my arch. The background was inspired by the Misty Mawn paper that's in the latest Somerset Studio. All stamps are from Time to Stamp/I Brake for Stamps.

  17. Shelly, here's a tip if you need more silhouettes (like YOU need a tip from ME-LOL). I have one Copic marker and it's black. You can stamp any open image with black ink and color it in with the black Copic (you can use other black pens, but the Copic works the best I've tried). Voila, silhouette!
