IAAS Monochrome

Come along to International Art and Soul and join us with the 'Monochrome' theme.

I decided to go with black and white for my card.

I've used a 6x6 card blank by Craft UK. I cut a large black scalloped square with a Spellbinder die as the base mat. I next embossed a square of white card with a Crafter's Companion embossalicious folder of clouds. The sentiment is one that I love. I received a card, just because, from some very old friends of mine who now live many miles away. The card was in aid of Barnardo's and designed by Kirsty R Walker so I presume the verse is also by her. I hope she doesn't mind me using the sentiment on my card. I printed it in black before cutting with an oval Spellbinders die and matting on to a black scalloped oval. I set it towards the bottom of the main mat and then added a stamped image of a feather, stamp by Visible image. I stamped it in black Memento ink before cutting it carefully, leaving a small white edge, before adding to the top left of the base mat. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

IAAS Christmas in July

Why not come and join us for 'Christmas in July'? We're here at International Art and Soul with Jennie's theme. 

I've made a very simple card but it looks quite effective. I used a Craft UK card blank 6x6 in size. I made a mat of red card with bottle green card matted on top. All the card is from Papermill. The image is from a Joanna Sheen Victorian Companion CD. I printed it and then cut it with a Spellbinders oval die before matting on to a gold scalloped oval, again cut with a die by Spellbinders. The image was then set as the focal point on the card and it was finished. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
