Good afternoon friends! This is my second post for the day. Please scroll down for my CAS-ual Fridays post.
Today is the 25th of the month which means that it is time for the Papertrey Ink blog hop. There is always an awesome challenge and this month is no different. Create a card using black. Here is our inspiration photo:
I was inspired by the bottom right photo, using bold geometrics. I decided that I would use Framed Out #1 and a bit of Mister Huey shine. This was my first time using this bottle and I must say that I am in love. I picked the right challenge to try using it . I had expected that it might be more clear, but instead is appears a shimmery silver on black cardstock. The sentiment is also from Framed Out #1. I diecut a piece of True Black cardstock and used the inner piece to stamp my sentiment. I heat embossed it in white. I glued that piece down and then attached the frames randomly with foam adhesive. This entire piece was then attached to a black card base.
(Please excuse the poor quality of the black cardbase. I do not have a lightbox or an 18% gray card to help when photographing my cards. Trust me when I say that it is True Black in person.)
I hope you are finding lots of inspiration. I have already spied a bunch of beauties in the gallery. Thanks for stopping by!
