Forgotten Friday 30- Black and White


Hi folks, it's Friday again, and time to rummage through your forgotten stash. I'm not at home right now, although I should be on my way back, as we speak. I've been visiting my parents in the North East of England, as it's approaching my Mum's birthday. So, this is a scheduled post.

This week, I have chosen to make a black and white card, which is not a frequent colour choice for me, I have to say. I did cheat a bit, and add slight touches of colour though! I chose a lovely backing paper from an old Graphicus Guild paper pack as my starting point, which I matted onto black card. I coloured some of the details with touches of grey and blue pencil, and edged the paper with Black Soot Distress Ink. I added a KaiserCraft rub on, bought at a Graphicus Retreat, and I had just stored these away and forgotten about them completely. I'm not a great rub on fan, but I liked these sentiments, there are some lovely ones in the set.

I then made a flower using some waxed paper packing that I had received with a craft parcel, and saw the potential for crafting with it. I stamped some wording on it with Black Stazon, but it doesn't show up very well, sadly. I will try other methods of altering, and see how it works. I edged the layers with the Black Soot Distress Ink, and added a large black brad.

Finally, I added a large Stamp Camp butterfly coloured with Antique Linen Distress Ink, to complete the card.
Don't forget to have a look through your stash to see what you have been neglecting. If you feel like making something, add a comment to my post, and I'll pop along to take look. Thanks for stopping by, xx

Hi Buddy, this is gorgeous and I always love the elegance of black and white so this pushes the right buttons for me, definitely!

The flower looks fab and I'm sure I had a parcel recently with some of that waxed paper in which I too hoarded. I'll be blowed if I can remember where I put it though, lol!

Hugs

Judith, I bought some Kaisercraft rub ons at that same retreat and I had forgotten about mine too. I must look them out and try them as you have a lovely result here. I admit rub ons make me nervous. Well done for experimenting with that packaging too. I am a great believer in recycling.

A beautiful card Judith, I always think that black and white always look so elegant. I'm glad to say that after 2 1/2 weeks without internet while we changed providers, I am at last back on line and can join in again. Here is my contribution to this weeks Forgotten Friday.
