This week's Three Amigas challenge is to make a black and white card with a pop of red. I was inspired by this lampshade from hunkydoryhome.com
For the background I stamped the brocade style image stamp from the new Stampin' Up Friends 24-7 set in Versamark and then embossed it in white repeatedly to create the background. This took a bit since I had to re-position the image with the stamp-a-majig after each individual image embossing. I love the way the background came out though! The rest of the card was a snap after that. I stamped this same image in black on Whisper White, added sentiment in Real Red with a rhinestone brad from the Pretties Kit and some of the new Valet ribbon. This is SO pretty in real life. It is a ruched black velvet, it's a shame you can't see the detail of it in the photograph. This 3 pack of ribbon is a must have!
Please join us for this challenge. We call it the Three Amigas Weekly Challenge or TAWC so make sure you use the TAWC so we can find your cards in the SCS gallery.
Have a wonderful stamping week, y'all!
