Black and White

Hi there. I’ve been in a weird crafty mood since yesterday – trying things out, not liking what I’ve done, binning things. In the end I walked away from the craft room and went to do other things.

This morning, I settled down to watch some crafty TV, some of which I had already taped, and decided to try again. I first took a look at some challenges out there, and the first to catch my eye was the colour scheme for this card:

I knew I wanted to use more of the Thirsty Brush and Co stamp and die sets, and wondered how they would look in black and white. I must admit I like this – so I made another using the reverse effect:

Thank goodness for challenges – for giving inspiration. I am also glad I don’t tend to tidy or pack away new items until I have used them in some way.

I used a Sue Wilson die set for the base card and trellis effect. The Carnation Stamp and die set from Thirsty Brush and Co – which included the sentiments, and the two sets of dies for teach sentiment – I just swapped the black and white borders around.

Hopefully, my little crafty hump has gone……..

I shall be entering the following challenges:
