Bushman silhouette

Hi again, I'm playing with some new stamps and inks.
I tried versafine onyx black on this solid stamp but I think my ink pad may be getting worn out as it stamped splotchy! I was happier with this image stamped using Ranger archival ink.

I'm linking up to the anything goes challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday.
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

At Addicted to Stamps it's a Clean & Simple theme.
I used some snippets of black and orange card to layer the image so I'm visiting the playground at 
Pixie's Crafty Workshop, you only need to use 1 scrap or snippet to join in the fun!

Stamps: Kitty Lane
Other: distress inks; Ranger archival inks; sentiment sticker.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. Super card Cathy - perfect for a chap! The silhouette is stunning against the beautiful background.

    There's been some discussion about stamping using solid stamps over at Kate's blog -

    I'm not sure of what is a perfect solution though - it seems to be trial and error :)

  10. This is fantastic. I love the sunset . The silhouette stands out perfectly. hugs Mrs A.

  11. Oh my, this is just great. It is so different from most stamp sets and is perfect for where you live. I just love it.

  12. Another awesome silhouette against this sunset background. The glow around the cowboy is stunning. I find these silhouettes sometimes don't always give a crisp stamping...even with Versafine. The Misti helps me a little bit with that. Sometimes I think it is the stamp rather than the pad - which I always blame. But this one looks really good with the 'look' you've got for this fella. These stamps are really nice motifs! TFS

  13. Wow! This is absolutely GORGEOUS! I love it so much!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us for Anything Goes week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
