Silhouettes

I usually have at least a vague vision of what I want to do when working on a design.  This week's tag design evolved through pure serendipity.  The only thing I knew I wanted to use was a paper cut from a collection I'd done a while back.  I went through the box where I had them and then found prints that coordinated with one of them.  Next, I decided to use the Tim Holtz Big Ticket die to cut my base.  I did some paper blocking to create a background and found remnants from other projects to complete my design.  Somehow, it all worked together.  I considered adding a blue-green rhinestone to the center of my paper cut, but decided it would take away from the classic silhouette style.  I hope you like it!
