A change of scheduled post this week as I've made this card as my contribution to the current Cards in Envy challenge of "Black and white" and I want to get it entered! - Cards in Envy is my absolute favourite challenge blog!.
I know that you automatically think of die cutting when you think of black and white but of course, I'm a stamper! So here is a stampers version of black and white!
I have only used white Sheena Stamping card, a black Momento ink pad, white structure paste, black gesso and an amber illustrator marker for the whole card which was fun.
So, from my blank piece of stamping card I stamped my focal image of the wonderful balloon in black Momento (Bee Crafty Art Stamp). From there is was to concentrate on my background which has been done by simple wiping the ink pad across the page from both directions, pressing and drawing that ink pad inwards. I just stamped some of the clouds from the main image (being careful not to catch the basket) and extended the clouds a little bit both sides.
The birds are from Lavinia Stamp.
Then structure paste (white) was pressed through an Indigoblu dinky stencil and some black gesso through another stencil (which was a great big swirl and I've used on a small portion of it).
The sentiments are cut down from some art journalling stamps by Indigoblu.
I then highlighted those with a bit of colour as the challenge suggested with an amber illustrator marker.
Another masculine card! Wahay!!!
Mat and layered with black and white card stock.
I would like to enter this in to the Cards in Envy challenge of "Black and White":-
Hope you've enjoyed a lesson in black and white today!
