Okay, so the “Men in Black” take off may not be the best way to describe Want2Scrap Silhouettes-Embellishments In Black, but they since silhouettes are usually classy and black and men in black suits are generally classy, you now can see where I made the connection. Well, maybe only if you think like I do (and I’m a little off today).
So, back to the Silhouettes….. These are GREAT! I really like using them. Reasons?
#1-they come pre-packaged so I don’t have to do the work of cutting them out and have more leftover scraps of black cardstock, nor do I have to buy a die for something I just want one of!
#2-You can use them alone, OR if they have a chipboard counterpart, you can use them on top of the chipboard for more dimension!
#3- You can’t go wrong with black. These make fabulous scrapbook embellishments or decor. Heck, you can use them for whatever you like! They are EASY!
Do you remember a while back when I did the framed birdcages? Well, I used the Want2Scrap Charlie’s birdcage Silhouette with it’s chipboard counterpart. I didn’t have a silhouette to use with the other birdcage, so I had to paint it. Much more messy.
Here’s a refresher:
This is the one I had to paint. It was messy and I had to make sure the paint didn’t collect in the corners. I also had to make sure the paint didn’t run and make the chipboard stick to my table cover.
You really can’t tell the difference from a distance, but using the Silhouette was definitely more efficient!
There is something mysteriously romantic about silhouettes. There is an outline, but the details are left to the imagination. They simulate shadow and there is always mystery about a shadow. Add a little “bling” for interest.
Want2Scrap‘s Silhouettes are great quality for a great price! You simply can’t go wrong. You can see our selection of Silhouettes HERE.
Thanks and Happy Scrappin’!
