My sister's birthday is approaching and I have made her this card to match the tag that I made for her prezzie (the black and white tag a few posts down). I have wanted to make a black and white card with one coloured element for a while - thought I'd take a bit of a gamble but I think it worked out ok!
I used the fabulous sketch from Friday Sketchers, the Whiff of Joy image is coloured with distress inks and the papers are dovecraft.
I didn't have a black flower so I found a pale prima and coloured it with a black whispers pen - it turned out really well and it looks like it has a velvety texture. The embossed panel was done with my stylized flowers folder and I used pearlescent card so it has a nice sheen.
For the inside I used the same dovecraft paper and I embossed another piece of white card with the same embossing folder I used for the outside.
The flourish and the sentiment are both from studio g and they are stamped with black stazon.
Card/Paper: Black, white and pearlescent white card, dovecraft amethyst range.
Stamp: WOJ - Melinda reading book, studio g
Colouring: Distress inks - black soot and fired brick, black whispers pen
Embellishments: american crafts ribbon, primas, spacer, pearl brad, jewels, silver stickles (wings)
Tools: Cuttlebug, stylized flowers embossing folder, water brush
Thanks for looking. x
