silhouette - take 1

It's my first time participating in the CASology challenge and I'm really struggling with the silhouette theme.  Here's my first try...

I really wanted to play on the sentiment "You're Boo-tastic" from Mama Elephant's Bootastic set since I've learned the many affectionate ways in which the term "boo" and "boo boo" are used by youngin's these days.  While I was playing around with my stamps, I saw that putting Frankenstein and the Witch close to each other made it look like they were holding hands....awwww, the little boos;)

I don't think I had the right kind of black marker, but you can kind of tell what I was getting at.  I loved the cuties so much that I tried another approach, this time without the silhouette effect, and I was so pleased.

Really, how cute are these Halloween characters?  I mean really now.

Stamps: Mama Elephant Bootastic, Midnight Letters
Inks: Tim Holtz (wild honey); Memento (tuxedo black); Memento Luxe (lover letter)


  1. These two cards are so adorable Lorraine. Yes....really cute! Love them!

  2. These are so adorable!! I did do a double take thinking, wow, did they make silhouettes in that set?!! Cool ---No! Wait.....Just look at what you did!! It is like they are holding hands, and then turn to see the moon together so we see their silhouette's! Cool Job!

  3. Would never have guessed you'd struggled...I think you've pulled the silhouette off perfectly...they're both so sweet!
