Black Ink only


It’s challenge #75 with Sharon at No Time To Stamp again and I had a ball with this one.  The challenge was to use black ink only, no pencils, markers, chalks or coloured inks,  just BLACK!

I have been doing some doodling related art lessons with my children lately so I thought I would do some doodling on my card.  I used the flower stamps from Baroque Motifs and One of a Kind to create a row of flowers, then drew all my stems and leaves with a fineliner.  I gave a few of the flowers  rhinestone centres as well as adding a  matted greeting.  I punched out a red flower and a stamped black flower and layered them with stampin’ dimensionals  to add to the greeting. To make the red lace at the bottom I used decorative edged scissors and a tiny whole punch.

I had a great  time doodling and decorating this card,  I think I will try a few more along the same theme.  Make sure you check out all the design  team’s ideas for this one.
