Daring Cardmakers - Back To Black

Hello everyone and welcome to another Friday challenge from the team over at Daring Cardmakers.

Svenja is our host this week and would like to see black feature as the main colour on your card.

I decided to go clean and simple with this weeks challenge.

I made the peacock the focal point of my card.

I stamped and heat embossed the peacock from the Royal Peacock Bundle in white onto some black card stock.  I then cut this out using the coordinating die.

I thought it made quite an impact just with the black and white.  I then added a tiny amount of colour by adding some sequins in pretty peacock just to the tail feathers.

As the back ground was all white I wanted to added a little bit of detail so I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  I then stamped some of the flowers from the stamp set in black and again added a couple of sequins just to add that pop of colour.

I then finished my card with a greeting from the Ravissant Bouquet stamp set.  Again, I used some white embossing onto black card stock.  This stamp set is also available in English and German.

Thanks for stopping by today.

Please head over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog and check out all the lovely inspiration from the Design Team.

Have a great weekend.

  3. Fab card, Dawn! The peacock looks fantastic in white on black, I'd never have thought of using it this way.
