Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #249 Black & White

 


                                       Challenge #249 Crafty Cardmakers:  Black & White

 Welcome to 2020's second Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and the challenge is 'Black and White' As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or some home decor.  I am hosting the challenge and I am looking forward to seeing what marvelous creations come our way!

I chose an image by Tiddly Inks titled 'Wryn - Grow a Little Love', coloured her with Prismacolor, markers and used designer paper (Stampin Up's 'Urban Underground) for the card background. I made the flower from punches & a die and added 4 rhinestones in one corner. The LOVE die cut (Stampin Up's Big Shot Expressions Thinlets die) finished it off.
