What's Black & White & Cool Caribbean???


This card is my entry in the Stamp Shack's Creative Team Color Challenge for the week. We were to use Black, White & Cool Caribbean. I hadn't thought to use these three colors together, but I really like the combination and contrast.

The patterned background paper is by Doodlebug Design. The paper is really black & white, but I colored in the flowers with a blender pen dipped in the tray of my SU Cool Caribbean ink pad. The stamp set is an acrylic set by Stampendous - Happy Flowers. I stamped the little flower on the clear button with black Staz-on and tied it onto the cardstock with heavy black thread. The black & white polka dot ribbon is from Michaels. It really wasn't necessary and you can barely see it, but I used the Cuttlebug divine swirls embossing folder on the background paper.
