It's Not All Black and White

Krafty Floral Blessings

For this month's Verve Project Parade, I paired my kraft paper with black and Wild Wasabi, and some soft white edges. I love how crisp black is on kraft and the great look you can get with chalk, craft or hybrid inks, like I did here with VersaMagic's tea leaves color. Those Abundant Blessings flowers just pop in real life. I added just a tiny contrast of color to all that green with a pink Prima flower accent.

What's In It?
Stamps: Abundant Blessings (Verve)
Paper: wild wasabi, black, kraft (SU!)
Ink: onyx black (Versafine); cloud white, tea leaves (VersaMagic)
Accessories: ribbon (May Arts), ribbon tag trio and circle dies (Spellbinders), Score Pal, paper piercer (SU!), flowers (Prima), black licorice brads (Lasting Impressions), dimensionals

Have you pulled out your kraft paper yet? Or how about some other natural fiber material like hemp, twine, string, cotton, etc.? We can't wait to see YOUR project parade creations! Then link your project to this post for a chance to win $15 in Verve Bucks. Deadline: September 30. Keyword: VVPP06
