We have a new challenge at Try it on Tuesday – Black, white and one other colour. I love black and white, but always enjoy a splash of colour with it.

This is a Lost Coast stamp (I think) and the background is a Darkroom Door stamp.


I had a few b&w ideas in my head, so I made this, too, with a bit more ‘smooshing’ of Seedless Preserve Oxide. I coloured the moths (Stampendous)  with Prisma pencils, then overpainted with watery Seedless Preserve ink. The lines and dots are from Paperartsy.


Double Trouble have a Black and White plus one challenge, as do Crafters’ Café, so I’d like to enter their challenges.

Thanks for looking

See you soon

Fantastic on the first one how that little bit of color was seen through the black...clever and interesting. However, favoring the second one with the beautiful butterflies and that purple splash of color is stunning. Thank you so much for joining us at Double Trouble and your card also meets the requirement for The Crafter's Café who we are partnering with this week, their link is on our post...please join them.
