Black n White May 2017

Is it black and white? Chalk and cheese? Or a colour statement? Its definately not MY colour combo. Black and white are too extremely on the ends of the colour table for me. Put another 'real' colour with them and I'm in heaven, but without.. well, its darn challenging! So for that reason I had a go at The Sisterhood's challenge.

That said, I have done alot of black penwork of late on white card and enjoyed that very much and the patterns left behind, but when it comes to scrapping its a little more difficult with solid blocks of colour, or at least I find it so!

Hello card - in black and white - The Sisterhood of Crafters Black n White challenge 2017
It probably doesn't look like much, but being a digi card I put on every single one of those jewels and pearls individually, re-sized AND gave alot of them individual shadowing to help them pop up and out. I repeated the white damask/filigree in the background for a black-on-black effect which to me helped make it look more 'groovy' 60's revival rather than 1890's! I tried to use lace or ribbon as well - but the overly patterned effect created with the jewels and pearls stood alone and didn't want any further embellishment! I used a different damask/filigree for the sides to give it added interest. Happy with this.

I use alot of Hello cards myself to send to friends or family when its not their birthday!

Ingredients : will come back and pop them in. Mostly Far Far Hills.
