Bloggers Challenge #50 BLACK & WHITE





Today is Bloggers Challenge day and this weeks Challenge is BLACK AND WHITE!



For this card, I used my W3 & W5 Copic Markers and shaded the flower and leaves. Then I cut out a few petals and leaves, curled them in my fingers and added 2 to 3 dimensionals to make them pop up and stay there (you can view this on the angled picture)... this will probably take a few extra cents for postage if you choose to do this on your cards. I also added a little bit of glitter to the petals for a little added OOmph! :)



Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps just came out with a *NEW* stamp set titled Jesus Cares. I just LOVE it!



So here are some more details:

Stamp Sets: In the Garden by SU, Jesus Cares by Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps

Cardstock and Ink: Black Adirondack, Whisper White, DP by TLC, Basic Black CS

Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, 2 way glue pen, Hardware, white grosgrain, Paper Snips, Dimensionals




If you can not read it, the Scripture on the card reads: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning. Psalm 30:5b.



Thank you for looking. This was a *REAL* challenge for me to use ONLY black and white - I wanted to add a splash of color in there some where. LOL

Enjoy your weekend
