Come to the Dark Side

This week, for the Mod Squad challenge we are to Come to the Dark Side. We have to colour an image on dark cardstock. I am also entering this in the StampTV Monthly Mix challenge - Gray is the New Black. We have to use gray as a main colour on our project.

I didn't have any gray cardstock that was dark enough, so I used a piece of white cardstock and sponged Slate ink over it. I stamped the flowers with VersaMark ink and embossed them with white embossing powder. I coloured them with some soft pastels, that seem more like chalk to me, and used a paper blending stump to smooth out the colour. I added some highlights with coloured pencils.

I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed it in white. I like this sentiment as it works for many occasions.

I matted this layer with pink and adhered it to a white card base. I added a bow to finish it off.

These are the supplies I used:
Gina K. Designs: White layering weight cardstock 
                             Slate ink
                             Especially for You Stamp set

paper blending stumps, pink cardstock, white embossing powder, ribbon, sponge dauber, tape runner         from my stash

  2. I like the texture that you ended up with by sponging the grey on the white card stock. Better than just using grey card stock. I love the flowers.


Thank you for your comments. I appreciate each one.
