When I saw that today's 12 Days of Christmas Challenge over at PCP was to make a black and white card I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Problem was I could not find the one sheet of paper that I had been saving for exactly this kind of card. I looked everywhere and through my mile-high paper stash twice. I thought I was going to have to give up when I finally found it, only to realize that it was not white as I had remember but a kind of silver-ish grey. Oh well I used it anyway, hey I had gone through all of the work to find it.
So here it is. Sorry about the bad photo. The paper has a metallic finish to it and I could not get a good photo of it.
The pattern paper is by Heidi Grace Designs, the red is PTI Pure Poppy and the black is from the back of my closet somewhere (found it while looking for the patter paper). LOL! I stamped the image and sentiment from Pocket Silhouettes onto the back of the pattern paper with StazOn. I found 2 tiny pearls I picked up at the Target $1 spot a while back and colored them with a copic to match the Pure Poppy. Added a bit of Black Diamond Stickles to the stamped image, a bit of Pure Poppy ribbon and that was it... done! Super quick and not a lot of stamping but I rather like it.
So it appears that I may have found myself doing a bit of digital scrapbooking. EEEKKK! Even though the idea of actual scrapbooking makes me shiver with fear, the digital thing is rather cool. I have no idea what I am doing though. The one page I made so far is nice but I know there are bazillion more things that I have no clue about. So if you know of any good sites or blogs where I can learn more please let me know. I feel another addiction coming on. I will post the little page I made here on Saturday.
Thanks for checking in. Have a great day!
