Red, Black, White Colour Challenge

On Gina K's Stamptv site there's a challenge to create a card using just red, black, white.

For this card I've used one of my favourite stamps, About Art Accent's: Plum Blossom (yes it's the one shown on a recent post coloured in varying pink shades). Embossed this time with white e.p.

Background paper is from Basic Grey's Scarlets Letter 6 x 6 pad.

Ribbon is from Michaels Stores: made it's way over here from a friend in the U.S., it's on a 4 ft. roll named Black, White & Pop.

The three brads over the ribbon were pink till I got my Japanese Lacquer e.p. out to refurbish them.

For new stampers who might be unaware that you can colour any brads this way; this is how I go about it.

  • Use a shoe-box lid (or an egg-carton), and make holes with an awl or similar to fit each brad
  • Push your brads through
  • With Versa-Mark (watermark) pen, wet the top of each brad
  • Sprinkle E.P. on top
  • Tip off surplus now
  • Heat emboss and allow to cool/set before removing

You still have time to enter this challenge too; it doesn't close until 20th July. Each entry entitles you to be in a random draw for a Gina K. stamp set valued up to $24.99. Be in it to win it!
