I am here with a couple of cards for the Papertery Ink Blog Hop. The inspiration this month is all about Black Backgrounds! Here is the inspiration photo from Nichole's blog:
I had two different ideas when I saw the inspiration for this month. The first was to do a blackboard like card with stamps and drawing with a versamark marker for borders. The second was based on the striped card in the middle at the bottom of the inspiration photo. I had an idea to make a striped card with two colors of cardstock (red and black) and dry embossing for Valentine's Day. Here are my cards:
|The borders around the heart, the arrow and the borders around the "blackboard" are all hand drawn with a versamark marker and then embossed. The stamp is from "With All My Heart".|
Thanks for looking at my cards!
I am ready to go and take a look at everyone's creations!
