Black & White + One Color
Two cards in this post. Both using black & white, plus a color. The first card is one I made for the current One Layer Wednesday challenge (#26), to use black & white plus red. I made a top fold square card (4.25 x 4.25). Top fold cards are my favorite to make. I stamped the Hero Arts cling Classic Holly on the right hand side of the card in black ink. I then colored the berries red and added some Candy Cane Stickles. The sentiment, also from Hero Arts, was stamped in red.
The second card is for the current Play Date Cafe challenge (#53) to use black & white plus burgundy. Well... my card is more like black & burgundy with some white! This card is also top fold, but a slightly smaller size then a standard A2. It is actually 4 x 5.5. Thus allowing for the bit of overhang by the black strip, but not making it necessary to find an odd sized envelope to fit the card in. Once finished the card is 4.25 x 5.5 - standard A2. Anyway... I stamped the Daisy Patch background stamp from Heartfelt Creations on the burgundy cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink. The same was done to the black cardstock strip. The daisy swirl image (also Heartfelt Creations) was stamped on white cardstock with Stampin Up!'s Bravo Burgundy and the image diecut using a Labels 14 die from Spellbinders. I ink distressed the edges a bit using the Bravo Burgundy ink. Another daisy was stamped in BB, trimmed out and adhered over the top of the first daisy with pop dots. Black Diamond Stickles were added to the swirls. The sentiment is from PaperTrey Ink, punched out using Stampin Up!'s Word Window punch. Sorry I don't have the PDCC graphic... I couldn't upload it for some reason.
Thanks for taking a peek... hope everyone has (or had) a happy and safe Halloween!
