Elzybells Black, White & Colour Challenge

This fortnight at Elzybells the challenge set by Elizabeth was to make a card using Elzybells stamps (of course!) and using the colours black, white and one other colour only. I stamped out the gorgeous Exotic Tulip stamp and coloured the background using a purple coloursoft pencil and Sansodor. I then went over it with my Spica glitter pen which sadly you cannot see in the photo but looks lovely IRL. I have then mounted the image to black Bazzill Bling CS and added to base with 3D foam pads. I have made the base by running half of a piece of Lilac CS through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots embossing folder and wrapped ribbon around before adding to a white card blank. Greeting (from a set of 3 greetings) stamped at the bottom and gem stones added to finish. Take a look at the blog for all the other DT creations.

STAMPS: Elzybells Art Stamps. INK: Stazon Jet Black. CS: Craftwork Cards, Bazzill Bling, Doodlebug Designs. ACCESSORIES: Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder, Anita's Grosgrain Ribbon, Papermania Adhesive Gems.

    I think you are incredibly talented! I also really like that you used a glitter pen to "spice it up"
