Hey there! (That's a Catherine Pooler tagline!) The Time Out challenge this time is sponsored by Catherine Pooler Designs (hence the "hey there!"), and the challenge is to be unique.
I was a little stumped at first, so I did what everyone usually does and went to Pinterest. I found some interesting prints of black silhouettes against book print. Score! I purchased a dictionary at a dollar store years ago and pulled it out. I tore out a page and adhered it to a piece of cardstock to make it more stable. Then I die cut it with a stitched rectangle and stamped the images and sentiment in Versafine onyx black ink for that silhouette look. I masked the flower to stamp the leaves, however I don't think I really needed to because it was all stamped in the black ink. I added this piece onto a black mat that was also die cut with a larger stitched rectangle. The base is a cream cardstock because white was too bright. I added some crystals on the flowers and around the piece. I think stamping on a dictionary page is pretty unique!
