Black, White and a Shot of Red


There is something about a black, white and another colour that really has an impact.  My card came together after I saw this photo from The Grommet site.


I started by adding some strips of washi tape to the background cardstock.  It is so easy to work with but sometimes I find I don't know what to do with it.  I think by having it on an angle adds interest.
The main panel is stamped in a 'grunge' theme using stamps from Impression Obsession and the hello is from Papertrey Ink.

Adding my card to these challenges:



CAS-ual Fridays- THREE THIRDS


Simon Says- KEEP IT CAS



Simply Create Too- STACK EM UP


Have a great week and thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps-PTI, Impression Obsession/ washi tape/ Memento ink/ enamel dots/ pop dots
