Using punches to silhouette.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to show you how to use a punch to create a silhouette or to use it as a mask.

First I started with a Thick Basic White Card Base, Bermuda Bay mat, and a Basic White inner mat. On a scratch piece of paper I punched out the straight-edged heart from the Heart Punch Pack and the dog from the Dog Punch.

I then aligned them on the card front where I wanted them. I did not use washi tape but just held them in place with my other hand.

Then I grabbed my Blending Brush along with Mango Melody, Poppy Parade, and Bermuda Bay ink pads. After a few strokes with that magic brush this was my result.

To finish the card I used the words from the Paper Pumpkin Kit and drew a paw print with the Poppy Parade Stampin’ Write Marker. (This can also be done with the Stampin’ Blends too.)

Please let me know if you use this technique and please feel free to post photos of your project to my page, http://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
