SOS263 - Balerina Silhouette

This week's challenge at Shopping Our Stash is to use Silhouettes.
I found this balerina QuickKutz die in my local thrift store some time ago and instantly fell in love with it. She looks really graceful and light.
I wanted to create something like a shadow effect so I layered the same die in black, gray and silver.
Background script is stamped, embossed in white and then sponged with aqua inks.

Challenges:
Broken Fairy Designs - AG + embossing
Just Us Girls - Let's Hear It For the Girls
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers - Resist technique
Cardz 4 Galz - No patterned paper

This is such a lovely card, with the grace of the dancer and the stunning colour which highlights the resist technique perfectly.
