This week's Make it Monday, over at the Papertrey Ink blog, is being hosted by Ashley Newell-Cannon and it's all about "colour isolation". What, you say, is that? It's about black and white images with a pop of colour. Go on over and watch Ashley's video and you'll see what I mean.
She made a VERY cute card, using Soft Stone for her black/white background ...
I came up with this card ...
Can I just take a moment to tell you how much I love Make It Monday challenges? There are weeks when I think "not for me", but if I invest some time and thought, I'm almost always happy that I tried. I don't think I would ever have come up with this card without Ashley's tutorial. At first I was all discouraged and thinking I didn't have the right stamps with me in Florida for this technique. I ended up having a very fun card making-session, and came up with four different cards. This is the only one that fits this challenge, but I really like it :)
I am also posting this card to this week's (CASE) this sketch! challenge, which just happens to work perfectly for this card!
