Black and White Background Card With a Pop of Color

by Aga

Hello, everyone! This is Aga here today sharing a quick and simple card with black and white stamped background that makes the main floral element really stand out!

I started using a masking technique and stamped Folk Art Stamp Set on my card. I masked half of the background and repeated the pattern on second half.

My next step was to create a main floral element. I stamped a sprig of dainty little flowers from Positive Vibes Stamp Set with Permanent Black Crisp Ink and used Watercolor Brush Markers – Spring Garden Set to color it in. Then, I cut it out using a coordinating die and popped up with a foam tape for an extra dimension.

My last step was to add a sentiment from Thinking of You Stamp Set.
Thank you for stopping by today!

I love this look. I have always liked a simple black and white background on cards. I think it gives an elegant touch to whatever you add to it, but especially when you add flowers, especially if they are dainty like yours.
