Black or White with a Pop

The challenge on the A Muse Studio Challenge Blog this week is black/white with a pop of colour.

Here's my take:

Now for the details. I've had this particular card in my head for a while and was so ecstatic that it fit this week's challenge that I forgot to commit all the requirements to memory. Silly me. The challenge actually requires you to create a one layer card using either black or white with one other colour for a little pop. So it's back to the drawing board to rethink this one. Maybe I'll be back later with a new and improved version that  accurately reflects the challenge. We'll see.

In the meantime, my "masterpiece" was created with a sugar card base, with images from Family Icons stamped in versamark and embossed in onyx, mounted on an onyx mat, and wrapped with onyx satin ribbon. I thought the ribbon looked a little plain, so I found some black crochet thread from an old project and tied the ends to give it a little flair. The heart was die cut from cherry woodgrain cardstock and covered in crystal clear glaze.

Hope you like it. And make sure to enter the A Muse Studio Challenge for a chance to win some fun prizes.

Hugs and kisses,
TraceyJ
