Today's card was inspired by the Challenge over at City Crafter,
where the theme is Black and White....
My loyal and good blog friend Ros from Ros-Mikeysmom Blog
has been on the design team there for seven years
and this is her last inspiration post.
I shall miss her unique and creative style and wanted to show my support.
This card is for her...
Cas-Ual Fridays challenge is Tic Tac Toe so that was was inspiration too.
I started with the horizontal line at the top
I stamped the black horizontal stripes with my trusty Misti first.
The butterflies have also been stamped
and masked to get the white heat embossing on the black.
I then popped on the spiky stencil, masked and black embossing paste
and just before it was dry heat embossed white powder,
which gave a lovely texture to it.
I finished with stamping the sentiments.
At this stage it was all on one layer, which I was so pleased about.
However....the heat embossing and black paste made the mixed media card stock
warp, so I had to go onto plan B!
I added the dry embossed grid layer and now it's the vertical line on the right.
How lucky was that?
It is one of those cards that looks like I made it quickly but boy did it take me ages.
And...I loved doing it!!!
Just wanted to say Thank You for all the inspiration Ros x
