BLACK, WHITE AND A SPLASH OF
The other challenge that I had planned to enter, the Paper Plunge, was asking for a clean and simple card. Of course I combined the two. They were a match made in heaven.
I began with a base of Naturals White, then a layer of Basic Black and then a layer of Whisper White. I embossed the Whisper White with a Tim Holtz embossing folder of pine trees and sponged them lightly with black to emphasize their texture. Then I stamped the deer from the retired Winter Post stamp set in Memento black ink. I added a red nose with my Stampin' Real Red Marker and then added a bit of dazzle with the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details. Finally I stamped my simple sentiment from the Endless Wishes stamp set using Real Red ink and jazzed up the dot on the "j" by turning it into a star with my marker.
