It's Black or White ... no gray areas
This lovely little card is for the Less Is More challenge (#42) which is to make a silhouette card. I started this card on Sunday with the "fall" stamp from this set but could not make it work. Then this morning at SCS the CAS challenge was to make a Wintery card and that sent me in a different direction for the LIM card; I used the "winter" stamp from this set and wow ... finally got it to come together.
Not really much to this card: the stamp set is from CTMH, the paper is SU!s Whisper White and Basic Black; the ink is Varsafine Onyx Black (love LOVE this ink pad) and the embossing folder is an old one from Cuttlebug. Though it doesn't show up in the picture, I went over the image with my black Spica Glitter pen and it really added a lovely subtle sparkle to the silhouette.
On to the old ......
This next card was supposed to be for last weeks LIM challenge which was OLC week with the added instruction to use leaves. Unfortunately I didn't get home in time on Friday to post it. :( This card started out as a test (black was the closest pad on hand) but I liked it so much I decided to throw caution to the wind and make black leaves.
The stamps are my first from Paper Trey Ink; the paper is SU! Whisper White the ink is that fabulous Versafine and SU! Real Red. There is layer of fine black glitter over the leaves and last, my much loved Kaisercraft pearls.
PS - Those ultra fine glitters .... they get everywhere!! No matter how careful I was, that stuff just would not be contained. I swear those little glitters have legs and wings. LOL!!
Thank you for stopping in. It will be a slow at work this week (finally) so I hope to get in a lot of card making. Plus I'm looking forward to checking in with all my favorite blogs.
