The term silhouette is derived from a french finance minister named Etienne de Silhouette, who had to impose strict economic sanctions in 1759 because of war. His name became synonymous with cheap. Silhouettes, either painted or cut out, were way cheaper than a portrait painting! I think silhouettes are beautiful. Especially sweet little girls!
(You'll have to imagine that the sequin at the top of the card is bright gold. Could not get it to photograph correctly!)
I'm giving away a stamp set that includes this sweet girl silhouette. You can see the entire set at the bottom of this post.
This silhouette is one of my favorites and I've used it before. She is adorable and I love the scene with the kitty at attention and the doll. You can download this Sweet Silhouette below.
Check out those pretty papers. I discovered a store called The Simple Surface. Seriously, they have created some beautiful digital papers.
