So I finally did it. I created a black and white card with no added color. I was tempted, but I resisted. After about 15 years of stamping, I finally managed enough discipline to leave off color.
I know you’re probably thinking, “Get a grip, girl. Get a grip!” But you don’t know how many times I’ve taken the black and white challenge, only to add a little red. Or blue. Or even some Rich Razzleberry. I was oh, so tempted to add some Marina Mist to the back of the vellum, but I didn’t.
I wanted the card to have a landscape orientation, but none of my background stamps are wide enough – and sideways Dictionary words just look weird. So I looked through my collection of current backgrounds for something that could fill the extra space, and, bingo!! – Corner Garden. It worked perfectly with Serene Silhouettes.
I embossed the birds with black embossing powder on white vellum card stock. I love using the little candy dots, but I wanted to cover up the Stampin’ Dimensionals, so added the dots to brad bases and added a little 1/8″ taffeta ribbon around the other side.
This was a very simple little card once I decided what I wanted to do. I’m happy with the end result.
Thanks for stopping by Stamping with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
