Last week I made a black and white card (with a hint of Bermuda Bay) and today I’m bringing you another black and white card, this time with a hint of Melon Mambo and Smoky Slate. I’m really liking these colors together (thank you Global Design Project).
I started with a base of Basic Black and then layered it with some Smoky Slate. Over the Smoky Slate, I strung around some Melon Mambo Thick Baker’s Twine. Next I layered some Basic Black over Melon Mambo over some Whisper White.
First I stamped my sentiment (so I had a gauge of space and size for the flowers) in Melon Mambo on Whisper White. The banners and sentiments com from the Banners For You Bundle. This bundle is great because it really allows you to create different phrases for your sentiment. I built my phrase using 5 separate phrases.
For my flowers, I used the various flower stamps in the Banners For You Bundle and stamped them above and below the banner in Versarmark. (I first drew lines in pencil that could be erased so I knew whereabouts to put them.) I heat embossed the flowers in white using the heat tool. To adhere the banner, I used dimensionals to give it a bit of a lift.
