Good Sunday morning. My projects today was made for the Splitcoaststampers Inspiration Challenge and the inspiration site was the Pinterest site Style! Black and White Living. I really love making black and white cards but do don’t them very often. If I do I usually like to add a touch of red somewhere to add a touch of contrast and interest.
My first card was inspired by the Pebbles with Butterflies. I applied ATG to the back of the three matting frames and attached them together. I cut the rectangle butterfly block down to size to fit behind the square matted frame and attached it with ATG adhesive.
I applied thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and a few tiny pieces to the back of the butterfly and flowers and attached to the card base. I wanted the cutout to stand a way from the white background.
This tree scene was not inspired by any particular piece on the site. I just thought it would be interesting to try using these images in all black. I think it is a lonely looking scene with the empty swing but I really like how it turned out. I stamped all the images using black versafine and embossed with clear embossing powder. I used the tiny leaf stamp from Coming up Roses to fill in the tree top with leaves and thought it was perfect to use for the ground area also. I layered the scene with black and attached it to the card base with strips of mounting tape.
Thanks for coming by today and I hope you have a great Sunday.
