It's my turn to provide some inspiration this week at Sweet Stampin' where our challenge this week is to "Use black, white and one other colour". Our sponsor this week is Bunny Zoe Crafts.
As it's wedding season I decided to make a wedding card. I used Sue Wilson's couple and cut them twice in black and pearl white, so that I could paper piece them.
I used Create and Craft's Couture "Enchanted Escape" collection to cut the frames in black and white card. I cut the trim from the collection in black and then snipped it in half as it was too short for the 8x8 card and tucked it behind the frames. I chose pink as my added colour as it always seems a popular wedding colour choice and added a mat and strip of it to the card as shown. The white background was embossed with Sue Wilson's "Heart Lattice" embossing folder. I assembled the card using a mix of flat glue and some of my copious foam tape!
I then remembered that it was a stamping challenge (whoops!) and so die cut a small frame from the collection and heat embossed in white the sentiment from Lili of the Valley. Despite using my anti static bag it took me 5 attempts to get one that I was happy with. White on black shows up all the stray flecks of powder perfectly! As the panel was so small (no, I didn't think and die cut each panels before stamping on it, won't do it that way round again) I decided to stand the panel on top of the tin of coffee rather than hold it whilst heat embossing. Of course, you're ahead of me in realising that the plastic lid of my coffee tin wasn't heat resistant and melted onto the back of my panel and dripped into the tin of coffee!
Hopefully, you will have a much less eventful time joining in the challenge. Just don't forget the stamping!
