A classic black and white combination was the simple recipe for my Bah! Humbug! Challenge offering this week. It is one of my favourite choices when it comes to quick and easy cards because there's ALWAYS black and white card within easy reach of any crafter.
I stamped these lovely Debbie Moore fanfare angels and Noel text silhouette stamps with black ink onto white linen effect card.
They were heat embossed with black embossing powder and then sprayed with Crafter's Companion Irridescent Sparkle. I really like the sparkle finish but wish I knew how to stop the nozzle clogging up as it's very tiresome having to continually rinse it.
Anyway, while that was drying, I punched 2 strips of snowflakes from sheets of white and black embossed card using the Martha Stewart border punch - part of a recent QVC TSV which was simply too good a bargain to pass up.
A panel of black embossed card was placed to the left of a DL landscape card blank and the white snowflake strip was glued on top vertically using a glue pen, which is pefect for getting to all the fiddly bits. The black snowflake strip was placed horizontally across the middle of the card before adding the stamped image which had been matted onto black card.
Lines were scored horizontally above and below the image up to the edge of the pretty black embossed card for additional detail.
Check out what Ann and Irene have been busy with over at Bah! Humbug! and then have a look to see who the random lucky winner of the stamp set is from last week's draw.
