Sunday Stampers Week #2


The challenge from http://pinkleart.blogspot.com/ this week is Monochrome, either black and white or black and cream.



I decided to use black and cream for a change. I used a sketch from http://beate.blogs.splitcoaststampers.com/2008/02/01/weekend-sketch-challenge-33/ as the basis for the card. Using a black Rangers archival ink pad I stamped 3 images from http://www.craftyindividuals.co.uk/ onto cream card and cut them out leaving a narrow border. I them mounted these onto a strip of black card. I hand cut a tag shape from cream card, punched a hole in the top, hand wrote 'for you' and threaded this on to a piece of cream satin ribbon. I tied the ribbon to the bottom of the strip of black card. Using a DL cream card and the Cuttlebug I embossed one half with the textile embossing folder. I then rubbed over the embossing with a black soot distress ink pad and inked around the edges of the card. Using DS tape I mounted the strip of black card to the centre of the cream card. Using a bow stamp from the morsels CD stamp set and black ink I stamped it 3 times to the left hand side of the card. Using clear glaze I highlighted the flowers on the stamped images and the 3 bows.
