Happy Tuesday!  Yesterday I promised you some stampy fun today.  Well, I’m almost embarrassed to show you my card . . . . I’m asking myself now what in the hell was I thinking.  I actually think this will a test of styles . . . it will be perfect for it.

So I was thinking (oh my BADness, yes it hurt!) that I wanted black and white, with a pop of color.  It’s been a very long time since I’ve done that.  Believe it or not, this card is clean and simple for me . . . no sponging, no extra embellishments, (or for pity sake . . . what in the hell was I thinking?)

Well, we might as well get this over with . . .


As you can see, it’s pretty simple.  The image was colored with Copic Markers and then everything else   . . . well, simple black and white.  The embossing of the Spellbinders dies gave me a perfect edge to add some faux stitching (something else I haven’t done in a long time).  The image is fairly large in size and to find a die to fit left too much white space.   I didn’t want that.  I found the size of die I needed, marked the edges of overhang, and trimmed the image out to fit under my die when I cutting and embossing.  Pretty cool!

I think the next time I use this image it will be inky!

Thanks for stopping by and remember . . . life is short, embrace the adventures that come your way!

  6. I really like this card but wondering what company does these stamps??? They are so cute and would be perfect for my old high school friends for birthday cards. Please let me know. Maybe simple is good once in a while. And look at the work it saved you. LOL Thanks. Edna

  7. I think it’s so cute and found out where the stamp came from. I originally hadn’t scrolled down far enough to see. Maybe simple is the way to go sometimes. Would be perfect for my high school girl friends. Edna

  8. Congratulations Sherry on your G45 spread today! Lovely and talented……I knew you were meant for that DT!


  9. Personally, I like the CAS look to this card (oh wait! But I like CAS! haha) I think too much inky would draw away from the image….and it’s a great image, wouldn’t want it to get lost!
