The theme for the next fortnight is to Incorporate Black into your chosen project. Black paint, stamping, embellishments, trims, fabric - the list could go on and on really.
I tried making something which was primarily black but I just couldn't get the hang of leaving out colour. I decided in the end to have one main image in black, some colour and other black bits and pieces.
I know it's a bit 'samey' but I love making tags and here's the one I've made for the new challenge at Anything But A Card:
|The light was a little flat for photos but here's the finished tag. The background was created with dylusion sprays and a piece of powder embossed corrugated card (loving this stuff so much!) was added for extra width.|
|The wonderful sentiment was stamped onto card aged with distress and torn edges. Black jute thread was wrapped around after the sentiment was applied.|
|A little more of the background stamping is visible here. Some black gros grain ribbon and ribbon with silver lurex thread was used through the top of the tag. (see first image for better view).|
|The corrugated card was inked and then embossed using the silver enamel. At the bottom of the tag you can just see some die cut lace. This was coloured black, embossed with clear powder then whilst still molten, it was stamped with silver brilliance.|
|Five different stamps are just visible in this view of the background.|
