Twisted silhouettes- Fairy Ombres

These distinctive silhouettes are made from original ink drawings I did one day on some old manila cardboard I had lying around. The old manila had a faded, vintage patina to it, so I cut out a nice decorative boarder around the silhouettes.  I decided to call them "Ombres", which means shadow in French.  Originally, silhouettes were called ombres until a famous M. de Silhouette made them more popular in France.

both of these silhouettes are for sale at my etsy site:
