OCC: Colour & Texture Challenge

This week's challenge at Our Creative Corner is extra fun - Loretta has challenged us to make a black and White card with lots of texture - and to use text as our focal point. I went for a range of textures on my card, dry embossing, paper flowers, brads and a little ribbon.

I've used the Circle Scissor Plus to cut my circle elements and a jumbo grommet and brad for my flower center.

Pull out all your black and white supplies and play along. Head on over to Our Creative Corner to see the wonderful array of design team creations!

Paper & Card: Whisper White & Basic Black card 
Ink: Black

Other: Black Brads, Jumbo Grommets
E-mail me to purchase.

Stamps: Feeling Groovy - Verve
Other: Long Rectangle Nestabilities, Ribbon, Textile Embossing Folder, Flowers - Prima
