Blogger's Challenge

This week's challenge is to use the colors white, black and a color of your choice.

I used the retired Bride Designer paper and sponged it with gray ink to get the swirls effect. I then cut the designer paper and a piece of black cardstock it with the lattice Big Shote die and layered these together. I saw this idea on Sandi MacIver's blog on one of the convention swaps that she received. I love the effect.

I used the Elements of Style stamp set and Perfect Plum ink to stamp the pattern on the circle. I layered this onto a scalloped circle. I used the new Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder to emboss the layer of white.
