Just Under the Wire

This is a first for me to play in the FlourishesTimeless Tuesday Challenge; Black Accents.  Whew, Just under the wire.  The challenge time for uploading is just a couple of hours away.  Some of the gals over at SCS Flybaby group were talking about this and posted a link so I went and checked it out.   I have been making cards for three days and I had to MAKE myself use black.  I didn’t realize how often I don’t use this versatile staple color. I used black scallop borders around the main image and added a touch to the bottom of the card.  I outlined the letters with a black marker too.  That really made them stand out.  It was kind of ho-hum before I added that touch. 
I am entering this in Mark’s Finest Papers challenge #159  for Glitter also.  They have a cool stamp set I’d like to win.  Join in and your name could be drawn.  You never know unless you upload.  I cut my own letters with Cuttle Bug Tag Sale dies and then used a glue pad to get them sticky before adding my own glitter.  oops…I almost used embossing powder.  Gotta remember to check that stuff out before sprinkling it on.  Open-mouthed smile
I was trying my hand at shading with using Staedler Watercolor markers and a blending pen.  It went pretty quick.  I’ll be using that technique some more. The paper flower and button are from Creative Memories.  The image is House Mouse Designs.
