Black and White, Baby!

This week our challenge at Wicked Wednesday ATCs is BLACK AND WHITE! I love creating in minimal colours.

Ingredients: Black, White Cardstock; DS Paper; Black Stardust Glitter Pen; Ice Stickles; Black Pearls...


Talk about a minimal ingredient list!  I printed the image, trimmed it, and matted it on black gloss. I added black glitter pen to part of the image.  I set to create the patterned layer - since I couldn't decide which side of the paper to use, I used both.  I cut squares, and fixed them together in alternating patterns (dots and flower doodles). I fixed it directly to the black gloss base, and then added the image layer on top.  I popped wee black pearls in the corners, but it still missed something.... so I set to adding Ice Stickles!  The digi image is "Ribbon" from SansDesign


There is oodles of time to join us in our Black and White Challenge at Wicked Wednesday ATCs... we'd love to see your creations... Thanks for peepin'!

Beautiful Ribbon Card! I love how you changed up the background and the stickles did add the finishing touch!

It's so cool how you created the alternating pattern. Amazing how such a simple color palette can be so stunning :)

I'm hopeless with black & white - i always feel the need to add colour. This bow looks great and maybe the glittery bits help it look right with just black & white, i'll have to try that! lol
