Birthday Moths

Birthday in Black and White

Birthday Moths

Hi there!! My card today features another one of Ching Chou Kuik’s beautiful images - Come Softly.  It’s been a long time since I did anything in the “no-lines” technique, so I figured I’d have a go with this one :)  I colored it in a monochrome palette with my SN markers, and added a few glitter highlights.  I looked high, low and sideways for the “right” background paper, and just wasn’t happy with any of my thousands and thousands of design sheets!! So, I took the moth from the image and made my own :)  Some black velvet flourishes with silver touches, black and white flowers that i stacked and centered with rhinestone brads, a sparkly ribbon bow, and a stamped sentiment finish this card off :)

I’d like to enter this into:

Heartfelt Wishes

Fairy DotsMade this card after a few ideas flew out the window.  Head is still in an allergy induced fog…..blah!!! The image and sentiment that I heat embossed are from a stamp set that was included as a free gift with a magazine, and I really felt it lent itself to the mainly black and white color scheme of the card.  Both Wags n Whiskers, and Chocolate,Coffee and Cards are having “polka dot” theme challenges, so I used 3 different “dotty” papers, that I have had laying around for yeeeeaaaars!  The card needed just a bit of color, so I added some red sequins, that I found in my Mom’s craft hoard when she passed away… and some red trim to jazz it up a bit.  That makes it fit in with Oldie But a Goodie‘s current challenge, which is ‘black and white + 1′.
