Ebony & Ivory.

When I saw the current challenge over at Cupcake Crafts this week I imediately thought of this digi that I just knew that I had stored somewhere on my computer!!!. When I eventually found it last night I realised that I had downloaded the freebie without saving where it had come from so sorry it is an unknown to me. It came as a set of 3 so if you recognise it please let me know and I will come back and give credit where it is due. (Have since found out that this silhouette is from Dover Publications by Rico Prosperso and is in their publication 150 Silhouette Designs CD-Rom and book. Thanks to Tracy for giving me the information). 


The image was downloaded onto card stock and adhered to thick 300gsm white cardstock.
I then comptuer generated the sentiment and printed off onto card stock which I then cut down to size as an overlay to the digi. The Xcut Square Parenthesis nesting die was then cut out beneath the wording and before attaching to the front of the card I went round the edge with a black marker pen.I think it makes a nice simple bold  statement. The ribbon, bow, pin and beads were all leftovers I found in my stash. So without further ado I would like to enter into the following challenges:
Cupcake Crafts:  Black and white.
Cutie Pie challenge: Borders and Frames.
Papertake Weekly: Pins and Needles.
Alphabet challeng: O= Only one colour ( in this case black) plus white.
Crafty Catz: Ribbons and Bows.
Pixies Crafty Workshop: Crafty snippets # 35.

  1. Stunning Mrs A - I adore silhouettes. I did me back in, once again, crouched writing the roll call on Saturday for hours but will be snooping - man, it hurts, so am off for an early night.

    Thank you for the Fish and Chips addy - am a bit late but think I just might have another contact so maybe all is not lost.

    Luv ya! Di xx

  18. Darling, vintage-look piece! Black and white, as always, are gorgeous and you've shown that perfectly here!

    FYI: Could the image be from Dover Publications? I know this image is in one of their silhouette books (because I own it :)), and I know they often offer freebies as teasers for their books ... HERE is the book

  21. Those freebies always lead me to make purchases from the site, so I love them! This one is great and your card is very pretty. I don't know where it came from, but CuddlyBunny mentioned Dover Publications. I get a lot of free images from them.
