Two totally different cards today, both with black and both with flowers! The first card is for SCS's Clean and Simple challenge, to use black, white and one Bold Bright color. I had some red felt hanging around on my craft table, so I thought I would pair it with some of PTI's Black and White Basics.
I used a sentiment and flower from PTI's Green Thumb; colored the flower centers with a Real Red marker. Button is from SU.
The next one is uses the Fall to Layout #42 from Clean & Simple Stamping. Here's the layout:
and here's the card:
This vintage-y card was inspired by the jacket my friend was wearing while sitting in front of me at church yesterday! Her jacket was actually a toile print in black and cream, with a black plaid collar. I don't have any toile, so I stamped my Floral background stamp in Basic Black on Naturals Ivory and antiqued it a bit with some Creamy Caramel. The plaid is from Crafty Secrets' Earthy Pad. I antiqued it too, although it still looks rather black & white in this photo!! The image is from a retired hostess set, Provencal; sentiment is from Sweet Violets by Flourishes. Added some buttons from my stash and some SU ribbon from Dress Up. The image is watercolored with reinkers.
