Cupcake Challenge 54 & Blog Hop Candy Winner

The challenge this week over on Cupcake is to make a shaped card that is anything but square! I have a stash of stamped images and some of them never see the light of day, so I had a search and found this funky penny black zebra image and I thought he was perfect for the card.

With the image being a zebra, of course I had to go for a black and white look, but decided to add a splash of hot pink to liven it up a little. I used my circle and scalloped circle nesties to create my card base and layers - the base layer is actually black, but it doesn't show up too well against my black backdrop! I used ribbon and jewels from my stash as embellishments.

The rest of the DT have made some fab cards again this week, so make sure you check out the challenge!

Card/Paper: White, black and pink card
Stamps: Penny Black
Colouring: Distress inks - black soot, peeled paint, vintage photo, weathered wood
Embellishments: Ribbon, jewels
Tools: Cuttlebug, nesties, swiss dots folder, water brush
