Today Color Challenge on Splitcoast was called Black Rock Elegance - who could resist such a challenge? The colors to use are basic black, river rock and whisper white. I wanted to make a sympathy card for a friend who lost her Grandfather at the weekend and I thought that these colors lent themselves well to this type of card.
The card is very similar to one I made at the weekend for the Featured Stamper Challenge, so essentially it's a case. The main image uses the hostess set From The Garden. I stamped it with basic black ink onto whisper white card stock and cut out the flower portion. Using a blender pen and river rock ink refill, I highlighted the petals. To give the center of the flower a little more definition, I added small dots with a black marker. The sentiment is from a retired hostess set.
The background paper is from the retired Brocade Backgrounds and is sponged with black ink. The black card stock frame measures 3.25 x 4.5 and is 1/4" thick. The small flat backed white pearls are from the Pretties Kit.
Thanks for stopping by - enjoy your day!
