It's Not All Black and White

Here For You

Well, I found a dress for the wedding, and we had a really nice time! This is the only picture we took of the two of us. I hardly ever think to pull my camera out, even when I do take it to an event. And please, ignore my strange eyes. I have very blue eyes and the camera turns them demon-red. Then the red eye correction turns them into huge solid black circles. Lovely, hmmm?
Moving on...I made this pretty card which I thought would be perfect to tell someone, "I'm here if you need me", from the new Verve Stamps release, Here For You. The sentiment is embossed and the swirls are rub-ons. It was a little wishy washy, so I added black accents with a gel pen and by rubbing ink along the frayed paper edges.

What's In It?
Stamps: Here For You (Verve Stamps)
Paper: Whisper white, Almost amethyst Palette o' Prints (Stampin' Up!)
Ink: Versamark; Midnight black (VersaMagic)
Accessories: black GellyRoll pen (Sakura); decorative pin (Heidi Grace); beads (Halcraft); white detail embossing powder (Stampin' Up!); Wholy Cow rub-ons (Basic Grey); white thread and sewing machine, ribbon
