Black Tuesday

July 31st, 2007

Today is the last day of Challenges in the SCS Dare to Get Dirty celebration and I get to host another one!  The Dirty Dare Gallery will continue to accept uploads through August 22nd and the forum will be open for chatter through August 15th.  After those dates the gallery and forums will be available for viewing only.  So….you still have PLENTY of time to play!  And my challenge today is super easy….Fall Back on Black! 

Here’s my sample:


This Garden Whimsy set is so much fun!  For this card I stamped on glossy white cardstock with Bashful Blue and Celery classic ink to coordinate with the Cutie Pie Designer Paper.  Butterflies were then outlined with a Sakura Black Glaze pen (yes – the same one that gave me so much trouble on my boat card!) and highlighted with a little stickles.  It’s really a very simple card and I think the black really gives it a bit of POP!

stamps:  Garden Whimsy, Warmest Regards

paper:  Bashful Blue, Celery, Black, Glossy White, Cutie Pie dp

ink:  Bashful Blue, Celery, Black

other:  Sakura Black Glaze pen, black and celery grosgrain, blue gingjam ribbon, puzzle decorative scissors, stickles, swarovsky crystals (thanks Debra!)

I’m off to work (hi Mom!) so I’ll have to catch up on the entries for my challenge when I get home tonight.  I really hope you’ll play!
