Black & White & Sketch

Last week was so buy that I almost forgot about the Timeless Tuesday Sketch at Flourishes. As I checked the blog this morning I realized that I still had about 10 hours till the deadline. YEAH!!! enough time to make a card.

As I scrolled thorugh the site I saw the B & W + 1 challenge.  Black and white with a one color. So I decided to combine these two challenges into one card.


The black CS was embossed with white embossing powder and vice versa. The stamps are from the the Flourishes Cherry Blossom set. The image was colored with Copic markers and highlighted with Stickles.  I used a gold metallic pen on the edges of the CS and the center edges were also highlighted with Stickles. MS butterfly punch.

This is the lovely inspirational sketch by Silke. Great sketch.



Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
