LIM42 - Miss you

This week's challenge at Less is More blog is to do a one-layer card featuring silhouettes.  I used watercolor paint to make a wash of green on the background and then stamped my birds (Inkadinkado) and sentiment (retired amuse artstamps).  Tied a piece of copper cording.  Should've stopped there - oh yes, I should've stopped there.  Alas, I did not - I had a thought that some splats would add that extra needed oomph - in fact, it looks as if my card has the "bird flu" - oh well, can't win them all -
Here is a link to a silhouette card I made back in February that I really love - it is definitely not a one layer card but there are no splats to be seen!

I think I agree about the splats Michelle, this week is not a one layer challenge however, so you could have added another layer if you had wished to give it the oomph you wanted!
It's s super card whatever.
Thanks so much

Love your somments about the bird flu! Your card is simply lovely

Love those birds and the splats are fine, but would've perhaps looked better in green, blue or black? Great idea x

It would be more CAS without the splats but I still like it - arty and colourful. xx

I like this card, with the spats. Maybe it was better without them, but with them is great as well
