For You

Silhouette UK  have a weekly challenge to use the Silhouette free cutting file. I've been wanting to join in but I just haven't liked the free files for the last few weeks.  This week though, the freebie is both pretty and versatile, so I've had a go with it.

I ungrouped the file and deleted all except three flowers which I re-sized. Then I created a blank 'base' for each flower, which I coloured using spray inks. The sentiment was made using a freebie alphabet from a few weeks ago.

I'm not sure if it was a wise decision to use a black card base. I played around with different colours as a base and liked the slightly chalkboard effect of the die-cuts on the black. I used an embossing folder on the black to give a bit of texture, but it doesn't seem to show up in the photo.

I'd also like to enter the spring flowers challenge at Cut it Up

Zooming in I see the texture of the black paper, a great touch. I very much like the soft colors with the black background, it gives a bit of a dramatic effect and the card is useable for many occasions and it's quite age and gender neutral as well...
