Monochromatic Scene

Basic Black

Having seen a card on Pinterest that used black on black I was intrigued enough to try my own version. In my case I used a new stamp from Nellies Choice, called Lake with Rowing Boat, whereas the one I saw used florals. Using Versamark ink I stamped it several times before heat embossing in clear. It needed more, so I inked it again with Black Soot and added black powder for heat embossing. This was better but I repeated it several more times before I was satisfied. And getting a good photo of a card like this needs more expertise than I have but hubby is too tired to help. The sentiment is from MFT I think – I’ve lost the label that I usually keep with my sets so I’m not sure. I stamped this with Versamark on a scrap piece of vellum and heat embossed in black. I used a corner punch to give it some shape and added the glue to the back where the words are in the hope that it doesn’t show. My hands are very shaky today, not sure why, but probably due to some neck issues I’ve had recently, so in spite of being careful a small amount of glue does show. If I try to pull it off I’ll spoil the whole card so decided to leave it alone. I wish the photo did it justice as it’s quite nice in reality.

This card is for the challenge at Colorful Options and I may make another if I have time. Thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks, if I were to do this again I would choose a dark gray CS rather than black as I think it would stand out a bit more.


    1. Thanks Lisa – I wish it was a better photo. I think I am going to have to polish my photo skills somehow.
