Colour Challenge!

We have a colour challenge at Less is More this week. 
The colours are taken from this fab photograph!
Here I used a stamp from Unity over a background of Distress ink and Perfect Pearls stamped with an acrylic block!
           The inspiration picture is this dramatic image of a young girl.
I recently purchased a Silhouette Portrait cutting machine and I have been having a bit of a play with it! For this card I was practising welding letters together. I think that I will be doing this kind of thing quite a lot as I really fancy having the versatility of being able to use any font on my computer!
I could do with finding somewhere nearby that does classes for the Silhouette... I learn better by seeing and doing rather than reading how to!
Have a great weekend!
