How about black, white and coral today

Can you believe I actually finished 2 cards today!! Wow.. I am on a roll....LOL... here they are... 


the specs today was to use Black, White and Coral... now Coral is not a color I would often use... so I was really tempted to do this one....


I was totally unhappy with the first card... so that's why I did a second one...



This bird stamp is from the limited edition Hampton Art range... these stamps work really well.
I used a black base and cuttle bugged (bird image) the coral paper layered onto black card. stamped bird in black on white off cut and inked up the sides with coral brilliance ink. layered this onto a black off cut... 





In the finished card you can see I layered a ribbon down the centre and added a bow and some pearls to the card.
Now this one didn't  talk to me... so I set about doing another.... LOL


Used a new bird image from the Hampton Art Limited edition range and inked it with the Hampton studio G white ink. it works really well. I cut this out and layered it onto the Coral color and cut around the first image. layered this onto black and again onto coral.
Base card was black. I cuttle bugged (harlequin background) the white and layered it onto the black base.  Attached an off cut of ribbon I found in my stash and made a bow on the side. Added 3 flowers with pearls and to finish a little "hello" sentiment on a small tag I got as a gift from someone a while back... came in handy....which comes from the Hampton Art cupcake range  the actual stamp says "hello Cupcake" but I only used the Hello section.


Here is the final product... although not 100% happy... I think its a bit better than the 1st one...

thnx for stopping by...

have a great day!
