Hi crafting buddies ,
Black and white always has an extra edge over the colors or let me put it as a different kind of magnetic power these colors possess....
So here is my little inspiration for the black magic.. ;)
I made bunch of simple cards (sometimes less also does the trick! )
So here is the first and my favorite background stamp from Hero Arts(spice market large petal background)..This particular one looks as elegant in multi color tones as in simple black and white.The sentiment comes from the Stamping Up Blooming with Kindness stamp set. Also added pearl and rhinestone. After stamping i divided it in three panels and layered with black card stock, center panel being larger in width than the rest.The central panel is than stuck with 3d foam tape to give a little dimension to the card.
Next, I made couple of note cards and I pick them up now and then to write Thank You notes etc for friends and family.These were fast,easy and fun to make,Here I used the Tuxedo Black ink from Memento inks..I love the crisp and clear image you get with this ink..and if you wanna put in a little color with your distress inks, watercolor pencils, copics ...then this is the best ink as it does not bleed or react with water.
Ps: You can notice a generation stamping technique on the note cards...
The last of the lot was stamping on glossy black card stock with Memories Unicorn pigment inks..Love the crisp white image it gives even on a glossy card stock. To speed up the drying process since it was a glossy surface i used my heat tool.And added just a hint of gold to the flower centers with my ever favorite uniball gold signo pen. The stamp comes from the Stamping Up family and is called Corner Garden.
Hope you liked the cards..
