Roses are red

Hi all,

Time for a new card challenge at Red Carpet Studio! I had a hard time on this theme... I am totally into bright colors, like pinks and yellows in example, but for this weeks challenge colors are forbidden! Make a card in black and white... Phew, and there I was, sitting in my craft roon, with hardly any inspiration... Hard to color a stamp when only black and white are allowed... And suddenly... a lightbulb! What an idea! I bought a butterfly stampset by Marianne Design on my birthday, and I have an embossingfolder with butterflies! And even a lovely sentiment in the butterfly stamp set!
Drums please.......


Quite lovely huh!! The butterflies and sentiment are stamped with Memento Tuxedo black ink. I used some shimmery white cardstock and some black and that was it!


These are some close-up pics. To finish my card I used a black marker to color some of the embossed butterflies, and that was it. I think I created quite an elegant card and in the end I am happy with the result.

This week we are sponsored by Eureka stamps, they are offering 5 digi-stamps of your choice if you win! Who doesn't want that!
That was it for now, hop over to Red Carpet Studio and join us!

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Challenges for everybody - Anything goes
Pile it on - Anything but Christmas
The ABC Challenge - Butterflies
Hotshot Craft - Butterfly

Hugs, Sandra

What an elegant black and white card! Love all the movement, with the dry embossed butterflies flying in the same direction as the black ones! Your layers look beautiiful.
