Black & White + 1 Colour


Black and White plus ONE Colour is the new challenge at Try it on Tuesday this fortnight.

I've picked 'Picked Raspberry' as my colour on both of these cards.  For my first, I've used the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink through an IndigoBlu stencil on  white card.  The image, one of the ladies from Dylusions Couture set was stamped on the card with black and heat set the legs with clear EP, stamped again onto black card with Versamark and heat set using White EP, then fussy cut.  I stamped the bow on white and coloured with Picked Raspberry.


My second card used the same stencil and this time I used Picked Raspberry Oxide ink on black, using Oxide inks on black does slightly change the colour.  The lady was stamped with Versamark and I heat set the legs with White EP, stamped again with black ink onto white card and heat embossed with clear EP and fussy cut.  I used Picked Raspberry Distress Ink to colour, adding a little glitter to sparkle.  The sentiment was stamped with the P.Rasp Oxide ink and embossed with Clear.
The rest of the team have some great examples of using just one colour, so pop over to the main blog and you will find all the challenge details.

I am entering this at Penny Black and More - Make it Feminine

Thanks for calling in, have a great day,

Fabulous, Avril - very classy. Love the contrast between the two and the insights into stamping the Oxides on black card.

Both these cards are feminine and gorgeous. It would be hard to pick a favourite. The image stamp and stencil you used look fantastic together.
