I was excited to try a new ATC style, so I ordered some black cardstock on Etsy (cannot find any around here!)).
Most silhouettes are based on free clipart found online.  I drew the images on regular paper, then traced it onto the cardstock using a white carbon transfer paper.
Some clumsy scissoring and voila! Mini papercut shapes!
Backgrounds include scrapbook paper and inks. Some have tiny jewels for embellishment.



clockwise from top left:
Steampunk Standoff
Crane (on Japanese washi paper with 9 "jewels")
Wind Me Up
Breeze



clockwise from top left
Goodbye
Reflect
Pensive Owl
Imagine (personal collection)

I already have 8 more designs cut from the black cardstock.  I just need to cut more ATC backs  Grin

**more cards in this silhouette series on pages 2 and 3

Those are really great. I've never thought of cut paper silhouettes for ATCs - lots of possibilities there. I have a scrap of that same washi paper left over from some long-ago project. You've inspired me to do something with it!

Thanks everyone Smiley
I just finished up the last 3 silhouettes of the night.
I had been doing the papercutting over the past few nights, and today was background & assembly day.
I have learned that cutting antlers and branches is a real b*tch when using Dollarama barber shears for scissors LOL

I really like these, Absinthe And Goodbye are my favorites  Smiley although the Prophets is up there too

it's funny you should post ATCs with silhouettes today. Yesterday I was thinking about doing a  silhouette for a Valentine's page I have in mind. I was thinking about maybe not being able to find a design that would work, but I think I'm going to try and see what I can find...
