Ruby's Rainbow Challenge


Good Wednesday morning!  It's time for a new Ruby's Rainbow challenge; this fortnight Sandra has challenged us to make a card with black and white, plus one other color.  Sounds fun, right?!

I chose SU! Peach Parfait and I just happened to have some matching DP in my stash!  (I love the SU! In Color DSP; there's a nice variety of patterns which are perfect for the monochromatic look.  I really need to order the new set of colors....)  I simply colored the flower, added a generous helping of glitter, and finished it off with a large black brad.  I added 3 small brads to the image panel and called it good.  I thought of adding ribbon, but decided against it...I like the crisp, clean look...sometimes simple works!

Image: Stamping Bella
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select, SU! Basic Black, Peach Parfait CS and DSP
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Embellies: Barbara Trombley's Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", Spare Parts Brads
Extras: Crayola Colored Pencil, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will come on over to Ruby's Rainbow to gain some inspiration from the DT's creations.  What color will YOU choose to pair with black and white?  I can't wait to see!

I'm also entering my card in the following challenges:

Crafty Ann's Challenge Blog: It's a Girl Thing
Stamp and Create: Bold and Bright
Truly Madly Crafty Challenge: Monochrome
