C4C48 - Red, Black and White!!!

Jessie, our July hostess for the Crazy4Challenge team, could not have picked a better color combo (in my humble opinion, that is(!!!  I LOVE RED, BLACK, and WHITEIt is pure Drama!!!!

I used a new-to-me stamp by Hero Arts.  I embossed the stamp in white on both red and black paper.  I cut out the upper and lower birds from the red and paper pieced them onto the black.  On the upper bird I added some black stripes with a Copic marker.  I used my Nesties to cut the image and the red panel out, while using my Marvy scallop rounder punch on the plaid panel.  I paper pierced the white panel.  I then added a few white pearls to pop the upper and lower parts of the black image panel.  Easy, and IMHO, a cute one!!!

I have not been able to catch up with everyone after my vacation and I apologize for that.  There are only so many hours in the day......and have had appts., both fun and not!!!  Really enjoyed lunch with friends on Wednesday......my friends are the treasures in my life.

Anyhoooooooooooooo....enough about me......You now really must visit the following blogs to see all the drama created by the rest of the team.  Here are the links to help you.........Enjoy the journey!!!
