It's Not All Black and White

Black, White & Hot Pink!

How was your weekend? I had a very relaxing weekend. Didn't do anything too exciting. I had designed an anniversary invitation for a friend, and spent a few hours yesterday helping her make 26 of them. I wish I had taken a pic, but never thought of it until I got home.

For today's "Black, White &...", I threw in hot pink. The flower is stamped in black stazon and colored with prismacolor pencils and gamsol. It's surrounded on two sides with silver brads. Then layered on black and pink passion, which was trimmed with mini scallop scissors. The black polka dots are by Making Memories. This was all layered on whisper white and pink passion. The sentiment is from a Mike's clear dollar stamp set. It's stamped on a cuttlebug die cut. You can actually cut both colors at the same time, rather than sending the pink through first, then the white. In fact, I cut three at the same time, because I wasn't sure if I would be using black as part of the design. Finally, I added two pieces of white grosgrain. I pulled them up through a hole I had punched in the die cut oval, then knotted them.

Looks like I'm playing along with you today...I posted a while ago with 2 black, white and yellow cards! I forgot you did this! Love it, love the boldness of the card! Hot pink is a favorite of mine.
