It's All Black and White

Here is my sample for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge! 

Ok, black, white and some pink and a little green! haha! This was pretty simple to put together once i decided how i wanted it. The only thing i think requires explanation is the flower...

I punched out 2 regular and 1 small-ish scalloped circles, sprayed them with water, crumpled them then un-crumpled them, layered them, poked a hole in the middle using my paper piercer, used a brad to hold them together, then stuck a large rhinestone over the brad. i poked another hole in the main panel before adhering it to the cardbase. i have found it difficult to glue paper that had been wet because the fibers keep it from sticking well. so it is best to use a brad to anchor it to the card somehow :o)

For the Birds!

This weeks Stampin Royalty Challenge is a Color Challenge! 

In making the cardbase, i folded the cardstock in half first before using the Die cut for the front. then after i die cut it, i ran it through again using the embossing folder. first on the bottom, then the top. the layout was inspired by a card i saw on a craft store advertisement, but i tweaked it to make it unique!

Ink - Melon Mambo, Tempting Turquoise, Black StazOn
Stamps - Aviary
Accessories - Circle Punches, Boho Blossoms Punch, Rhinestones, Brights Patterned Paper, Adorning Accents Embossing Folders, Adorning Accents Die, Little Leaves Die, Cupcakes Builder Punch (for the centers of flowers)
