Thinking about you ...


When I saw the Black & White challenge over at Playing in Paradise #16 I knew I wanted to play along.  I combined these colors with the Sketch challenge over at i{heart}2stamp.

I picked up my first A Muse Studio set of stamps this weekend and new they would be perfect for these challenges.  I inked up the branch w/leaves with white pigment ink for the black cardstock, and with black ink for the white cardstock.  In person it is a subtle white on the black that looks really nice, it looks kinda greenish on the picture.  Not happy about that.

I inked up the sentiment and butterfly with watermark resist ink, and embossed it with white embossing powder.  Used a Nesti on the sentiment, and a white pen to go around the border.  The butterfly was fussy cut before popping it on the design.

I hope you are inspired by my interpretation of the sketch and color challenge to go forth and create.

Thank you for stopping by.
