It's Not All Black and White

Be Strong

This is for Charmaine's Meet the Verve Diva Challenge, black and white splash. I think I misunderstood a bit. There's only supposed to be a splash of color. I was thinking anything goes as long as there's only one color. Oh well, let's pretend this is a "splash" of green. (Splitcoast isn't loading for me right now. I'll link to the challenge later.)

I applied both the Plain Jane Psalm 31:24 stamp and this border from Grateful Elegance to the same block and stamped it just one time, all lined up the way I wanted it. I think it's all pretty self-explanatory. If you have any questions, just drop me a comment or email.

What's In It?
Stamps: Psalm 31:24, Grateful Elegance (Verve Stamps)Paper: spring moss, white (Papertrey Ink); black (Stampin' Up!); small dots (Making Memories)Ink: onyx black (Versafine)Accessories: rectangle dies (Spellbinders); hydrangea and petite flowers (Prima); spring moss grosgrain (Papertrey Ink); icons gemstones (Me & My Big Ideas); tacky tape (ProvoCraft)
