Project 173: CAS silhouette stamp challenge

When I saw the colors at Color Throwdown this week I had to give it a go. These are the colors this week:

I have been harbouring this elephant stamp from Little Claire for a few months now and every time I've gone to use it I've been stumped and not sure what to do. This week, a friend asked if I would make her a bunch of cards and she likes things fresh, fun and modern and so I decided to shake off the cobwebs and give this little stamp another go.

Gosh was I glad I did.

I was inspired by the DT at Color Throwdown and how some of them use big block colors in their cards. So I decided to try the stamp against three plain color strips. It's a bit faint but I really like the output and will definitely try it agin.

I framed the three colors on black to give it a stronger base and then stamped directly on the panels.

I added minimal embellishment, just three yellow stars on the gold panel and three blue stars on the blue one. I then centred the sentiment and added a small green bling either side.

Clean, simple and super modern.
