Black and White With a Twist

I played along in the Frosted Designs Challenge this week, since Creative Cuts and More is sponsoring it.   The challenge is to create a card/project using black, white, and just one other color.  Fun!  I chose to use a Twist A2 Card in Neenah White, and broke out some Stampendous fabulousness to go with it.

I cut a black card stock mat for the center panel, and stamped the flower image from the Cling Jumbo Thank You set in Versamark ink.  I got out the White Opaque embossing powder (mine is part of the Carousel Kit - full of great colors!) and poured it on.  I can't say enough about the quality of the Stampendous powders - I threw out everything else I owned after the very first time I used these!

Around the edges I inked up the scroll from the Cling Jumbo Peony set and stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I added a bit of bling in the flower centers, and some green ribbon as my one extra color.

Stamps: Cling Jumbo Thank You, Cling Jumbo Peony (Stampendous)
Card Stock: Neenah Solar White
Ink: Versafine Onyx Black, Versamark
Accessories: White Opaque ep (Stampendous), Creative Impressions bling, ribbon (Offray)
Tools: heat tool
