... this week's challenge over at The Play Date Cafe is the Colour Splash - PDCC91 - black, white and one other colour.
I always love to use black, white and one other colour - in fact our St Luke's Charity Card Challenge has the same theme this month - so I'm going to put my card into that too! I've made a few cards this month that have featured B/W and green. So I decided to go with ORANGE. I had a look through my stamps and found this one - it has a really strong image that would work well inked in black and then coloured. I stamped it in Versafine and heat embossed with clear powder. I coloured the image with distress ink and cut it to fit the super black gloss mat, cut by my Nellie Snellen dies (not used often enough). I added a simple ribbon and the sentiment, popped up one of the flowers which I left white and add a couple of other flowers that I coloured to match. It's really bright and vibrant.
Stamps: From a Create and Craft set purchased several years ago
Inks: Versafine - Onyx Black; Distress - Spiced Marmalade
Accessories: Nellie Snellen - Rectangles (MFD008) # 3; Ribbon, flowers and card from stash
I picked Ben up yesterday afternoon - his plane was in on time so no hanging around at the airport, but the journey home took a while. Late Friday afternoon traffic!! In the meantime, my Uncle and Aunt arrived, so we had a brilliant family dinner and chat. Such fun. But I'd forgotten just how loud teenage boys are!!
That's all for now - I'll be checking in later to see what Less is More and Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges have in store for us. So see you later.
