Simply Less is More # 218


It`s Colour week at Simply Less is More Challenge and this time it`s, PREDOMINANTLY BLACK.
Your whole card doesn't have to be all black and you may use a little of another colour, but whatever you add to your design, even if it's minimal, should be mainly black.
So think silhouettes, monochrome, ombre, chalkboard technique... there doesn't have to be a lot of black... if your design is minimal, it just needs to be the predominant colour.

I got carried away and made 3,

This one I think is my favourite.
I made a 6x6 square base card from Papermill White Linen card.
I used Black card to cut a smaller square, found the middle and cut out the circle using a SB die and rounded the corners before embossing it with a Darice EF.
I stamped the dotty circle with Versamark Onyx Black. I`m sorry but I can`t remember who made the stamp.
The sentiment is from an old The Stampman Football set, the font was just what I wanted for this card.

For this card I`ve used some snippets for the banners.
The Label is from Waltzing Mouse Vintage Labels, the sentiment is a mix of Layers of Color and Flourishes stamps, stamped in black and embossed in clear EP before cutting out with a SB labels 4 die.
I spent half an hour searching for my WM labels stamps before realising that I`d already got them out, Doh!

This one I`m not sure about. It`s a CaSE of a card I found on Pinterest which is fab but I don`t think the black and white do it justice.
6x6 black card base.
White linen card cut into a smaller square.
I stamped the diagonal stripe from Paper Smooches in Versacolour Black before mounting it using foam pads.
The sentiment is TSG stamped onto a Die-namics tag.
I`ve added a tiny bit of yellow with the twine

Enjoy the rest of your Easter weekend, try not to eat all your eggs in one go lol
