Less is More wk 42...Silhouettes

Good afternoon all!
It`s a theme week at Less is More and that is to use silhouettes on our creations. My first thought was to run for the hills but after a quick look in my stamp drawers I realised I have loads of silhouette type stamps.Panic over! lol.
It will be Alan`s (hubby) birthday on wednesday and he usually gets a footie related card from me so I thought I`d be unpredictable this year and I`ve made him this one...
Guitar and sentiment  stamps from Inkadinkado Rock Star set.
I stamped the guitar and cut out a long rectangle then used my new (and not very good) corner rounder punch.
The sentiment is stamped straight onto the card. I used Versafine Onyx Black but it kept pooling on the stamp so I cleaned the stamp, gave it a quick pat with some clear embossing and then used Versafine over the top and it`s worked a treat.
The music paper is some I downloaded ages ago and can`t remember where from, sorry, matted onto some amber card to add some colour and also because Alan`s footie team play in black and amber and I couldn`t not have something football related now could I?

Right, I`m off for a coffee and a warm up now. I`ll catch up with you all soon.
Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx
