Blogger's Challenge #173: Black/White and a Splash of Orange!


Our Challenge for this week was to create a black and white card with a splash of orange...I kind of dumped on the Peach Parfait but I like the results!

I began with my Basic Black CS and ran it through my Big Shot with the Spider Web Embossing Folder.  I used my brayer again this week and with Whisper White ink, gently added the ink to the raised portions of the web.  I needed a little glammer, so I sprayed the background with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.

The image is from the Greeting Cards Kids.  I must confess, these little images kind of creeped me out at first with those beady little eyes.  But then, I saw so many adorable cards that I got over that problem and bought it!!!  I used markers and my Aquapainter to color the image.

I punched out the image with the XL scallop circle punch and used the 2 1/2 inch circle punch in Peach Parfait as the background.  To add a little frill, I adhered a gathered up piece ( or four) of the Basic Black Waffle paper. 

The Happy Halloween sentiment is from Teeny Tiny Wishes.  A little more of a finish came with the Peach Parfait Glimmer brad and the Peach Parfait Stitched Poly-Ribbon.

Thanks for looking and please go and see the other players' Black and White and Orange creations!!

I haven't tried the waffle paper and on this card, it is perfect. I'll confess that it immediately made me think of Peanut Butter cup! Love how you put this all together and using the brayer was perfect! I may try this technique tonight -- thanks for sharing!
