Simon Says: Black, White and One Other Color!

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Black, White and One Other Color! The design team is featuring fantastic Avery Elle products :), it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I decided to use my favorite Avery Elle flowers for this project - the Hand Drawn Florals. I stamped my flower and leaf (using my stamp positioner) with Lawn Fawn Jet Black Ink to color with my Copic Markers.  I went with a turquoise theme for my card and used the BG49, BG 13, BG11 and BG10 and light grey from my leaf to give a "white" effect using N2 and No . 

Once that was complete, I left my flower and leaf in my stamping tool and stamped them again using embossing ink and added Ranger Black Sparkle embossing powder to make the black really pop on the flower.

I then took out my new Card-Sized Confetti stencils by MFT and used Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. With the first stencil, I went with a very light hand and a heavier hand with the second stencil for a fun ombré effect. 

Once that was dried, I stamped my Hugs and Friend both from the Sentimental stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink and used the same Ranger embossing powder.

I put my panel on a Neena 110lbs card base and used my Crop-a-dile to crop two of the corners. I wanted to round them because the bottom of my flower was slightly rounded.

I finished my card off using Pretty Pink Posh Aquamarine Jewels.
