MOJO190 and Stamping 411 Color Inspiration 156

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

This week the color challenge at Stamping 411 included Basic Black, which for me means a bold and dramatic color scheme.  The color challenge also included Pear Pizzazz and Tempting Turquoise so I when I combined all those colors together I ended up with a very pretty card.

I got a lot of help from the MOJO sketch challenge!

I've always felt that using a dramatic color such as Basic Black is a great way to call attention to your project without overpowering it.  On my card, I've just a touch of it on my scalloped square and on the sentiment, but I think it gives the card a bold look without stealing the show!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have time to stamp today!

Hi, Just came across your blog and love your work. I recognize the Little Leaves Sizzlet Die, but couldnt place the stamped flower. Is this a Stampin' Up stamp?

Ruth, although I'm mostly a Stampin' Up gal, occasionally I'll use something else. For this card the flower and the leaves are from a Verve set called Dream Big. Thanks for visiting my blog!

Hi Jen, Thanks for letting me know about the stamp. I really like that flower. I was thinking I could really add even more dimension to it by fussy cutting each layer out and stacking it on dimensionals. I've subscribed to get your blog by email now, so I won't miss any of your lovely cards. And I'll be casing some too!
Thanks again.
