Lots of Love - Stampin' Chic Colour Challenge #2

Whoo Hoo! It's my turn to show you my Pink and Black challenge card, and let me tell you it was like a breath of fresh air to do something different from the same cards that I have been preparing and making for the last three weeks!

Don't forget we have a prize for the winner of the colour challenge this week so click here to get more details about the challenge and enter your project. Just type your name and paste the URL into the Mister Linky box to enter. It would be lovely if you would leave a comment too!The main focus of the card was made using one of the new lasting Impressions stencils. This created the white panel complete with scalloped edge and black dots (lovely!) and also the large and small flowers.
I dry embossed these on to pink spotty paper from the CCSR 'Big One' and gently sanded them with one of the Lasting Impressions Paper Scuffers. I coloured the buttons with a black Whispers Permanent marker as I didn't have any black buttons (must put that right!) and embossed and cut leaves from black core'dinations cardstock. The panel is finished with spotty brads from Papermania and the greeting is also from the paper pack. Super versatile!
Supplies: Paper and Cardstock: Papermania Clare Curd's Signature range 'The Big One', black and white core'dinations cardstock; Embellishments: Papermania buttons coloured with Whispers Permanent markers, Papermania spotty brads; Tools: Lasting Impressions stencil, Paper scuffers, embossing stylus, light box.

Well, I really hope you like it as much as I enjoyed making it! Join us tomorrow to see Martine's card made with the pink and black challenge in mind!

Love, Clare x
