JAI # 71 – Just Add Black and White

June 9, 2011 at 10:43 pm 10 comments

The Challenge this week at Just Add Ink is Just Add Black and White.  I found it to be a great project theme – I really like working with the contrasts.  I used to use alot of white on my cards but over time have moved away from doing that so it took me a bit of fiddling round to get to the end result.  Here it is………

I started by stamping the background with Whisper White Craft Ink……then thought – I want my White to be stronger – so embossed some of the images over the top……and it was OK – but I decided it need more dimension – so that bit went in the bin and I started again.

I still did the background Stamping but then made the Torn Window and stamped, embossed and cut out the individual leaves to stick in the window.  I used the Just Believe Stamp Set.

The Design Team have made some beautiful Black and White projects…..check them out here.  And don’t forget to have a go yourself and join in the fun.

    Wow lots of work in all that layering of branches but so worth it Chantell – it looks wonderful. Love the white on black – especially embossed!

    Love all your techniques here. Way to many for me to ever contemplate doing on one card. Good for you, the result is stunning.
