Stem Silhouettes

Sitting here in my craft room, I can't believe the cooler change in weather. It's looking quite wintry with the wind and light rain. Must be something to do with the cyclone up north of our state. I just hope Summer has not disappeared yet!!

Anyway, I've made these two cards today. Stem Silhouette from the Summer mini catalogue has not seen alot of ink as yet, so I thought I should have some fun with it. Guided by the DP Enchante', I've chosen Elegant Eggplant and Certain Celery as the main colour combo with some Almost Amythest. The sentiments are from Small Sayings, also from Summer mini.

With this second card, I've sponged a circle silhouette with Almost Amythest ink to add some contrast in the back-ground. I quite like this effect. Have also used the Cuttlebug and Hodgepodge Hardware.
Speaking of the Summer mini catalogue; there's only just over one more month before this catalogue finishes. There's some exciting times ahead. Next month we will be receiving the retiring list of stamps from the current catalogue, to make way for more new and exciting stamps to be released in the new catalogue on April 1st.
