Do you ever look at a stamp and wonder what it would look like as a silhouette? I decided to use the cowboy out of the the new Stampin’ Up! set Out West as a silhouette and it worked out great.
Hang out a moment and check this direct to paper tutorial out. I love, love, love smearing ink! Note: I used ink spots, but you can use the full size pads also for this technique. Be sure to just use the edge of the pad when smearing.
Let’s get started. . . . . . . .
