Black and White Challenge, is the first one. I started this one with black cardstock, layered on two strips of plain white cardstock and embossed a rectangle of white with Cuttlebug Textile EF and added that. I added faux black stitching along the edges of the plain pieces and covered the joins with black stitched ribbon. I die cut some black cardstock with a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle die and added that to the background. I chose the image from Flourishes Bloomin' Aussie Florals stamp set, stamped it with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with only grey copics, cut it out and added it to the black rectangle with foam tape. Finally, I stamped the sentiment, from Teeny Tiny Sentiments (Stampin' Up!) in the bottom right corner.
Happy Birthday to Flourishes and a special hello and thank you to Jan Marie Caruso - the creator of this fabulous stamp company!
Copic Colours used were: C1, C3, C5, C7.
