Black, White, Rose

I've wanted to play along with a Simon Says Stamp challenge, so decided the current Anything Goes (with DT using Hero Arts) was a good time to do it.  I had layering in mind when I bought the Hero Arts Circle Design stamp a long time ago.  The image is stamped in VersaFine Onyx Black 3 times.  Each image is die cut with Spellbinder's circles & is lined up & attached with foam tape.  Took awhile to line them back up as I failed to keep them all in the same position as I cut them--live & learn--LOL!  I saved the doilies that came under our soup bowls at a local restaurant & love how it mats the image.  The rose is MFT mini rolled roses cut out of their English Rose felt.  The sentiment is also Hero Arts from the Find Joy clear set & is stamped with Distress Ink victorian velvet.  Sheer black ribbon, black pearls & tiny pink gems finish off the card.

The Focal Point Challenge I'm also entering the Moxie Fab World Focal Point Challenge. My sis has a birthday coming up, so this might go to her.  Hope you're enjoying the weekend & thank you for stopping by my blog.

  2. Hello Greta
    See that 'WOW' on the paper crafts card? It easily describes your creation, the monochromatic palette is an eye-catcher in Black and White, but then the art circle design stamp is stunning; more so because you have layered it to create dimension and extra interest.
    Placing the paper doily on the Bg adds a different feel and softens up the whole card. This is a winner for me.
