Black and White @ Red Carpet Studio

It's time for another card challenge over at Red Carpet Studio.  And the theme this week is Black and White.  I love the monochromatic look of Black and White so this was a fun challenge for me.

Black and White


I was inspired by a card from Lin.  I stamped the Leaf and Floral background with Versafine Onyx Black (definitely need a reinker here!)   and layered it onto the base card, adding some stripes of black card.  I stamped the sentiment with   Archival Jet Black, mounting onto black card.  The rolled rose is a MFT Die-namcis die.  Leaves from a Sizzix mini die.

Pop over to the blog and see what the rest of the team came up with.  And join us with your black and white cards.  And don't forget that we are looking for some guest designers.

I am please to say that our drain issues have resolved themselves without hubby having to crawl under the house and without having to get a plumber in!   

Hope your weekend is going well.... I've got most of the craft space tidied at last... just need to sort out my paper stash.  I tend to collect freebie papers from magazines and buy 6 x 6 pads and then not use them!

Hello Dawn
This card is bold and dramatic, using the different hue on the floral bg,is good composition and breaks it up beautifully; it would have looked too harsh if your ink pad had been juicy, you have created some tonality, so therefore some texture.
Great Card
