Pregnant Lady Silhouette Card (KBD Aloha Friday Challenge #64)

Hi everyone! :o) 

Yesterday a new Aloha Friday Challenge started at Kitty Bee Designs.

New challenge for this fortnight is #64 - Favorite Color Combo. One of my favorite color combination is violet/white. :o)

We have two sponsors for this challenge: A Random Fan and Sami Stamps, so there will be double prizes! :o)


For this challenge I made a Pregnant Lady Silhouette Card, using our sponsor's Sami Stamps 'Waiting for You Silhouette' digital image.

This is CAS (clean and simple), one layer card and my first attempt of no line coloring. :o)

I recolored image lines in MS Word (Format Picture - Recolor - Light Variations) and print it on a white watercolor paper, directly on a card base.

After printing, I left image dry some time to prevent unwanted ink smearing. I colored image in watercoloring, no line, technique, using gorgeous Tim Holtz's Distress Ink Wilted Violet.

Card dimensions are 100 mm x 139 mm (4" x 5 1/2").

List of supplies: 
  • Sami Stamps 'Waiting for You Silhouette'
  • Koh-i-noor watercolor paper (250 gms)
  • Tim Holtz's Distress Ink (Wilted Violet)
  • MS Word
  • printer
  • MS scoring board 
  • trimmer
  • Marabu fine rounded paint brush no. #2
  • paper towels 
  • water
