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.
