Silhouettes

This week's theme, SILHOUETTE, presented me with a bit of a problem yesterday, I didn't have a single bit of black paper anywhere in the craftavan or the house! Nor did I have any punches or dies with me suitable for silhouettes, lol, so I had to draw a silhouette and you can probably tell that drawing is not my forte -

I coloured some card with my black pen for the silhouette and tried the same on a butterfly I had, but not very successfully, as you can still see the print underneath. I used a piece of gorgeous black beaded trim and that was all I could come up with, lol. I shouldn't have been so fixated on doing a traditional head silhouette, but you know what its like, once you get something in your head. 

And then I had to pack up everything in my craftavan as we will be going back to the UK soon. It looked so empty and sad at the end of the day when it was all done.
