Daring Cardmakers-Just One Colour!!!

Posted by manicstamper on March 30, 2007

Well Lythan has set the challenge over at DCM this week and we have to use just one colour to make a card. Black is allowed for the sentiment if you are using white card but I decided to go all black with this one as the card was already out on my desk…….and if I have got it wrong again I am sure that Lythan will make me do another colour.
I stamped the background using Versamark and the vases and script were also stamped in Versamark then embossed using clear powder. Didn’t want to use another colour to mount the pieces on so I just scraped the ink pad around the edges and dipped into clear powder to give a bit of definition.
Looks awfully dull here in the scan but IRL it does look very nice so I might have a bash with some different stamps and card colours.
Thanks Lythan…….great challenge this week.
