Black and White

Hi everyone.

I managed to find time today to make this card, especially for this weeks challenge at Allsorts
The topic is black and white, and only gold, silver, or skin tones added.
I needed a sympathy card so used my Darkroom Door orchids and a very old word stamp from R & R Pocock (dated 1996) The ink is Memento Tuxedo Black, and I used my Misti to get a good coverage. I added a little touch of Wink of Stella gold to the centres of the flowers

Hi everyone.
Today's card features my new die  from Serendipity. I cut it twice, once in red and once in white, so that I could inlay the stripes. For the background, I sponged on various DI's and used stamps from SU Wetlands set, and also a Stampers Anonymous set.

Sea dreams

Hi Everyone, sorry I have been absent for a bit.

Today's card is the result of having a play with Brusho's and Infusions and plastic wrap, for the background.  I did not like the walnut brown that came through with the infusions, so wiped it over with a baby wipe, which softened the colour a lot. I then went all over with DI cracked pistachio. I stamped the seaweed from Kaisercraft 'Coastal escape', added some diecut leaves, seahorse and shell (cut from scraps) from the same stamp set and the message from a TH set, stamped in Adirondack 'espresso'. I layered it all on to a pale cream card base.

Cats and dogs!

Hi everyone.
Today's card is similar to one I made last year, but this time I have coloured all the cats with my Promarkers. I used Saddle Brown, Caramel, and Cinnamon for the focal cat and Silver Lining for the rest. This fabulous set is by Indigo Blu.
