SSNOTIME108 Krafty Black

Hi All !
I decided to play along with Sharon's Stamp Simply challenge this past week which is to use kraft and black cardstock. I rarely use kraft as my ideas just do not go in that direction . Nothing like something to stretch the mind a bit! Now this card was easy peasy ... I took a piece of kraft and ran in through with a large pinking circle in the middle thus cutting out a circle . I then folded the cardstock in half. I then added a folded black scrap on the inside , gluing it so that it fills the hole. I then cut a smaller pinking circle out of a kraft scrap to add to the black . Oh, I punched two holes into the black and threaded the black striped ribbon. The ribbon was black and white ... I colored the white with a Copic that matched the kraft pretty closely. The ribbon was knotted and trimmed. The sentiment was stamped as you see above. The paisley flower is from Heidi Grace stamps. It was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and embossed with detail black. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Graphite was then sprayed lightly onto the kraft panel and once dry, black gemstones were added to the center of the flowers. And really that 's all it took ! What do you think ? I think I will pull out the kraft and try using it a little more ! Have a super evening wherever you are . { hugs !}
