black and yellow

 The challenge this week at Simplystampin is monochrome with a hint of colour - and that at Dynamic duos is black and daffodil delight, with optional dry embossing. I had intended to do 2 different cards, but am rapidly running out of time, (in fact, am sure that I am too late for dynamic duos already!) so one card that hopefully fits both challenges!
The black square base card is cut down from A4, and embossed along the bottom edge with a snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder, that just about shows up in the second photo.
The image from lovely as a tree was stamped in versamark and basic black ink and clear embossed. The sun was coloured with a marker pen, and the clouds sponged round the top from the cupcake punch with the basic black ink after dabbing most of it off onto scrap paper. I added shadows using
the blender pen, and also patches of sunlight on the hills with the daffodil marker. the trimmed image was matted onto a layer of daffodil delight before mounting onto the black card.
No sentiment yet, as haven't decided what to put on it!


  1. This is a lovely card. I like the way you have added the shadows. Jean x

  2. This is so effective - the shadows of the trees & sun along the little hills makes this so real & I love that sky. The matting onto the yellow works beautifully - I've just been working on matting exercises! The snowflake embossing helps to give a really wintery feel.
