Black/White + Splash of Color
Ahhh, the guys in my house left me for the weekend (they are having some serious FUN together), my daughter will be with her boyfriend and I will have almost an entire weekend for myself. Guess what I will do???
But before I want to say "Hello and Welcome" to my latest members on my blog
Rosi (Daen'Ys) did that when I joined her blog and I found that just so very nice. I get so excited when somebody new joins my blog, so I wanted to say thank you for making my day brighter. I hope you visit often and like what you see. See Rosi, I am an old copy cat, but that was such a nice thing you did!
So this card is for all of you (including my slightly "older" members):
Of course I also will link it to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Black/White + Splash of Color. I had so much fun for and more ideas for essentially the same challenge by Less is More last week, so using the same theme is just up my alley!
I ran the black paper with a Sizzix embossing folder through my Big Shot, directly applied white ink onto the embossed areas and glued the paper onto white card stock. The punches are from Fiskars (heart) and Paper Shapers. I used paint chips from Home Depot for the punched shapes and them I applied a thick coat of Glossy Accents onto the hearts. That shows better on the detail picture. The sentiment is Paper Smooches (Christmas sampler), which I heat embossed.
