Sweet Black and White

I often find inspiration, like lots of you, on Pinterest.  Years ago, when I saw a project that I loved, I would search diligently to obtain the exact product used so I could completely copy the whole thing.  After many years of hoarding.......collecting, inspiration happens differently and I am always delighted when I am already set to go!  I love making the most of what I already have.  (ya, because I have SOOO much it's almost ridiculous!)

The original card, from which I drew my inspiration, was created using stamps from Hero Arts:
The image and sentiment I used both come from Technique Junkie Stamps.  I embossed both the Flourished Floral image and the So Sweet sentiment using white pigment ink and white embossing powder.  When embossing on black, I am always certain to use my embossing buddy to reduce random areas of powder cling---I hate that messy speckled look!

Like in the original, I added some multi-colored gems to contrast with the black and white simplicity of the image.  It's really a striking card, in real life!!  You should totally give it a whirl!!  You can pick up the Flourished Floral image from Technique Junkie Stamps and totally copy it OR find other fabulous images to use with the same concept. 

If you are in the market for some of the Technique Junkie CD's while you visit the store, be sure to use the coupon code  techniques at checkout to receive a 25% discount on all CDs!!  I own them all and they are all my favorite ;)

Go.  Be Awesome. TTFN, Jane

  1. This is one of my favourite cards of yours Jane. Love your CASE. I'm going to CASE yours. That white really pops nicely onto the black.
