Cream and Black

The City Crafter Challenge this week is Cream and Black and the Mojo Monday had another fun sketch. I combined the two challenges together to create my card. 

I really struggled with this one for some reason. But finished it off and tried a new effect with the black glitter. 

I started with a few scraps (Yeah) the embossed panel and the die cuts were in my scraps from another project. I wanted a mostly cream card with touches of black but ended up using glimmer mist on my lace to turn it black.

The image was stamped using black ink and I wanted to add texture so I added a line of glue with Stampendous Ultra-Fine glitter around the edges.  I love how it looks like lace.

The rest was just layering and assembling.

Products: Stampendous - Ultra-fine Black glitter, Stampendous - Rose, Stampendous - Cherub, Hero Arts Antique Engravings

Here is the sketch:


Hope your day is going well!
