Text Color Trends Challenge

Embellish Magazine has an interesting challenge this time, to incorporate text into our creation and use the colors in the color board below, greys, black and white.  Hero Arts is sponsoring this challenge!


Recently the Graphics Fairy shared a digital silhouettte and that led me to searching Karen's site for more.  I found this sweet one, sized it down and printed it, then overstamped this stamped text image from Hero Arts, and then added some framed dp panels and my sentiment to finish my card.


supplies: white, black, grey cardstock, dps from Basic Grey "Ambrosia" paper pad from Donna, digital silhouette image, Hero Arts G2991 Friends Background, CL377 Be Happy, Versafine onyx back ink, black dotted grosgrain ribbon from Fika, Hero Arts white art flower, Maya Road gingham flower from Clare
