Black and white with a splash of green


That's the challenge this week at the Play Date Cafe.  This Webster's Paper looks celtic to me, and it looks so much like this Hero Arts digital image from the Stone Etchings set that I thought I'd pair them up.  I resized the digital image and chose 2 shades of green, then printed them out, cut out the floral part and popped both layers above the card surface.   Then I just added some black gems and framed the whole thing in green.  Again, this is not something I'd ordinarily make, but that's why I love these challenges.
