Silhouette card challenge and tutorial

 My September card challenge at Scarp 'N Chat is to create a Silhouette card.  The tutorial for this card is below. 

 You will need to cut a circle or oval from the center of a piece of vellum.  I used yellow so you could see it easily. 

Use a bit of temporary adhesive on the vellum to keep it from sliding on the cardstock.  Cover the opening with VersaMark. 

 Use cotton swabs to apply your chalks to create a sunset or landscape effect.   

 I did two different colors and two different shapes.  Wipe the chalked area well.  Remove the vellum. 
Choose solid type stamps.  Stamp with black ink and use black embossing powder to make it stand out against the background. 

Layer and embellish your cards.
