Black Cheddar

I know lots of people don't like working with black base cards but I do it quite a lot as I really like the effect it gives so unlike some people I was quite pleased to see the challenge at CASual Fridays this week - http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/cfc62.html


I stamped and embossed one of the camera images and a roll of film from the There She Goes "Oh Snap" stamp set directly onto my square black base card.  I embossed one of the sentiments onto red and cut out an embossed map pin from the same set to make it look like it was pinning it to the card.   I like the little hint of red against the black and white.

Great challenge ladies - thanks so much.

  4. Brilliant card Tara!! Love the splash of red and the tiny pin tack holding it in place. I think you've rocked this challenge.

    I have that set and it has yet to see ink - but it's such fun!

  8. Oh, that's just wonderful!! I love the stamps, the pop of red, and the pin is just the perfect final touch! Although I usually make OWH cards for children, which tend to use more primary colors, I agree with you about a black base and enjoy making black and white cards for adults.
