Black and White GKD

IMG_9026 (652x800)It’s been a long time since I dropped in at Gina K Designs and Stamp TV.  They had a black and white challenge going on using stamps from their collection.  Rules were that you could use gray scale and one color but only in the embellishment.  I need to restock my sympathy cards and I chose the Vertical Greetings and Things stamp set to have a go at this challenge.  I stamped the leaf image all over the front panel to create a gray scale background.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE my new Crisp Inks from ALtenew.  Next step, I cut a black pierced circle with my MFT die from one of the blueprints.  Then I had a scrap of this pre-embossed card stock from SU that matched the background perfectly.  squeeee.  I embossed the dragonflys from the set and fussy cut them out.  The bow was made from baker’s twine on my bow easy and i attached a little button in the center and attached it with a clip.  Added the vertical sentiment and I thought this long stemmed thistle die from Simon Says needed to be used.  THERE, talk about blending companies.

  1. Love the tonal colors and your "pop" of color is nice and subtle, fits in nicely with the sympathy theme.
