This card came about by trial and error. I recently learned a new technique using Black Gesso and Opalite inks. I used Cypress Frost on this card. I painted on the black gesso and then brayered on the Opalite. When I saw the metallic finish I instantly thought dragon flies. Hmmm...how to incorporate the black and white for the challenge?...Embossing powder. I began with white metallic but that embossed clear so I thought, no going back now so I added the black and that came out pretty good. Now did I have a flat white? Yes! When I completed the paper I then started searching through my stamps for a sentiment and Viola!
So here it is! My version of the black and white card challenge with a hint of green.
Claudine Hellmuth Studio black gesso
Opalite Cypress Frost
Inkadnkadoo Gem Stone Insects
Amy Fedder Desingns - Just Right clear stamp set Anchors Away (sentiment)
I hope you enjoy my card and I'd love to hear any comments!
