Summer Kisses

Good morning!  We have a new challenge for you from Flat Friends...we would like you to use an uncolored image...what a fun twist!

Since it's Labor Day and we are saying goodbye to summer, I chose Em's image Summer Kisses...I love her glasses and floppy hat!  Since the image is black and white, I thought I would play with texture.  I've used textured vellum, dry embossing, grosgrain ribbon, and just a touch of glitter on the hearts.  I printed the image multiple times to achieve the dark outline, then popped it up on the card.

Image: Flat Friends 'Summer Kisses' Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: PTI Stamper's Select and Vellum
Embellies: Art Glitter in "Angel Dust", White Grosgrain Ribbon (stash)
Extras: Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Foam Tape

This will be our last challenge at the Flat Friends blog.  I thought this image was the perfect "goodbye" and "thank you" to Em...she has been a doll to work for and I have loved being on her team.  Thank you for having me, Em!  I hope you will play along with our last challenge...we'd love to see what you create with an uncolored image!

White on white is always classy - and you made it fun too! I love the texture & the different shades of white you've used.
