Black and white

I just received some new (to me) stamps from Hero Arts, and had a little play, using one of the sketches they've posted for our monthly challenge.

HA Sketch

supplies: black and white cardstock, Hero Arts CG125 Friend Definition, CL508 Luscious Frames, VersaFine onyx black ink, Hero Arts CH171 Pink Accent Pearls

This black and white color scheme is so not my style, but once I'd stamped the friends definition, it just seemed to follow to keep almost everything else in the same colors, except for those tiny splashes of pink in the centers of the flowers.

And because this lack of color is very outside the box for me, I'll also enter this into CASE Study's "Think Out of the Box" challenge again.

  2. Simply gorgeous, Lin! I know you don't usually do black and white cards, but this is stunning. And, black and white with a pop of color is probably my second favorite color choice, after blue and green:) The pink is definitely you and so very pretty here.

  4. Not being a huge fan of black and white myself, I don't do much of it but I really do love the look of this one. The little pink pearls set it all off perfectly.
