It Is a Sweet Thing...

Hey there... here with a quick post.  I made this card for the Flourishes release week challenge to use black and white and as pop of one color.  The layout is from this week's Sketchbook Saturday sketch.  Love this super versatile sketch that Chupa came up with!  


Because the challenge is to make a card that is black and white with a pop of color I thought I would use the Gerbera Daisy set from Flourishes because that image seemed to lend itself to this challenge.    I stamped the image using Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and then die cut the squares with a Spellbinders square die.  I made sure that one of the squares contained a full flower for me to color which I colored with the following Copic markers:  R24, R27, R29 & R49.  Then all the squares were placed on the white cardstock that was embossed with the Quatrefoil die.  The sentiment was stamped using Stampin Up! Cherry Cobbler ink.  The card base is black and the mat is Cherry Cobbler.

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & black; SU! cherry cobbler; Ink:  memento tuxedo black & SU! cherry cobbler; dies:  Spellbinders & PTI; Copic Markers
