It's one of those cards that's really simple but has to be done very carefully to look good. It uses the scary combination of white embossing powder on black card and black powder on white card. You have to be really careful with this or you will end up with a right mess!
To avoid that I was careful not to get sweaty fingerprints all over the card and I used an anti-static bag rather liberally before I stamped with Versamark. I still managed to get a few stray specks of embossing powder though, so they were carefully brushed away before I heated the powder.
When it was cool I used a microfibre cloth to remove the remains of the anti-static powder.
I cut the black card following the angle of the top of the stamp and placed this on top of the white card. That was then cut into a rectangle. Now I just had to figure out how to make it into a card...........
My usual favourite of a thin black mat wasn't going to work, so I tried placing it on all sorts of bright colours - red, pink, lime green etc. It just didn't look right, then I had the idea of reversing the top layer - Perfect! I stuck another piece of black card on some white before sticking the stamped piece on top, making sure that it all lined up. I then cut it out leaving an even border.
Keeping the simplicity of it all I just added three white pearls and 3 black gems to finish it off.
It kept getting shown like this on TV but I think I prefer it how I intended it to be. Which do you prefer?
