Just a quick post with a couple of cards from last weeks classes, with a black and white theme. Papers from Black Market Paper Society teamed up with black and white card stock.
A4 white card scored and folded, a piece of black card cut slightly smaller to leave a white edge all round and punched along the bottom edge. The patterned paper is cut slightly smaller again leaving a narrow black edge all round and enough cut off the length to reveal the punched edge.
I have used the largest die from labels set eight from Spellbinders for the white card and the next size down for the black. This is a great shape for making backers for flowers or other embellishments. The smaller dies from this set are also useful for stamping sentiments on.
I have cut a strip of black card and a narrower strip of grey to make a band to tie the black organza ribbon around.
The flower is made using the blossoms die but any flower die or punch could be used. I have used layers of white tissue to make the flower held together with a black brad and very lightly inked the edges with black soot to give the flower some depth and highlight the layers.
Any of you that enjoy gardening or growing plants might like to see a pic of my Catus Last Sunday it had one single flower which has now died off...
but look at it this week, and it is full of buds.
Had a lovely day out yesterday, my daughter and I picked Mum up and went over to Eyam. We were lucky with the weather as when we got back BH said it had been raining here in Sheffield on and off, so he had stayed in and watched the footy, oh dear what a shame I had missed that! :-) It is hail stoning here in Sheffield at the moment and the noise of them landing on the conservatory is deafening!! Alfie is not sure about it, he is staying close.
Hope you have all had a great weekend too!
