Hippo Happiness Silhouette Card

Hello!  Today, I am sharing a project made for a TGIF Challenges.  I have to admit, this one was a bit daunting for me, as the technique “silhouette effects” is not something I practice often.   I believe most stampers would choose a nice sunset, flower or landscape silhouette.  Not sure why, but the first thing that came to mind, was a cow jumping over the moon?!

I didn’t find a cow stamp but the fun Hippo Happiness bundle provided lots of other cute animals to play with!

The night time background was made with a masking technique (for the white moon) and sponging using Misty Moonlight and Balmy Blue inks.

The unicorn silhouettes were stamped using the Hippo Happiness stamp set.  A bit of Wink of Stella was spattered on too, to create a starry sky.  This was then cut out with a rectangle stitched shape die and matted onto a Playing with Patterns DSP and Basic Black card stock.

The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed on Basic Black.  Finally, I added a Coastal Cabana bow and Basic Rhinestones to complete the look.
