Sketchy Black and White


I have to thank my fellow Stampin B's Challenge team member, Lois (Clownmom) for motivating me to make a black and white card this week. She was somewhat surprised this week when the Stampin B's challenge was to use neutrals and I went with browns instead of my traditional and fav black and white. So, Lois, thanks for the urge to return to my roots!!!!

This was a rather simple card. The image is from SU. The designer papers are all from the same pack (but I forgot to bring the name upstairs....sorry!) Otherwise, I CB'd the white panel, added some black pearls and a bit of piercing. The sentiment is from a Verve set.

Thanks to Roxie's early post, I can now head to bed.....early for a Sketch Challenge night!!

I own that set and never would have thought to make it in black and white. I haven't pulled it out in such a long time . . . tell OLI I might be tempted to sell it. :)

Joanne, this is one terrific card. I love that beautiful flower, the monochromatic colors, the pearl, the piercing and the embossing. This all makes for one great card.

Yes, what ever happened to all your black and white? Its good to see you re-visiting it! As soon as we get some colder temps and snow I am sure we will be seeing a black and white card with a couple of snow flakes....Yes, SnoSnot???
