Sweet Stampin' Design Team Card - Black, White & One Other Colour

Hello and good morning everyone ---

Well it's Saturday and Sweet Stampintime - so I'm here to share my Design Team card with you. Our theme this week is 'Black, White and One Other Colour' - so I chose orange as my 'other colour' and created a scenic card. This was really simple to do, the hard bit was now when to stop. LOL

REMEMBER you must include a stamped element on your project to enter, and link back to the Sweet Stampin' blog for a chance to win a prize!  Have fun and good luck.

So for my card this week I have used a stamp set with lots of flower layers, I just didn't use all the layers to create my summery scene,

 Here's What I Did
Firstly I die cut 2 pieces of card, one from white stamping card and the other from black card. Next I added colour to the white card using one distressing ink, a brush and a piece of torn paper. I increasingly added more colour to the bottom section of the card. Using several flower stamps I randomly added flowers and branches onto the bottom of the card using black ink. When everything was dry I added a little clear glitter to some of the flowers. I mounted the completed topper to the black die cut square and added it to the card blank using foam tape.

To finish off I add the word 'beautiful' to the top section of the topper that I'd die cut from black card.

Here's What I Used
Stamp: My Favorite Things 'Beautiful Blooms'
Inks: Distressing Inks - Mustard Seed, Black Soot, Versafine - Black Onyx
Dies: Paper Smooch 'Kudos Words'
Paper & Cardstock (CS): Crafter's Companion Matt Black CS, Sheena Douglass White Stamping CS

Janine, I love this gorgeous card. The ombre colour shading is so so pretty! Beautiful palette too. I love how all the team used different colours. I am loving these silhouette scenes lately as I've been experimenting with a little distress ink fun, so I utterly LOVE what you did! Hope you're feeling a little better hunny and getting plenty of rest. Hugs, Wends xoxo
