I'm Back in Black!

The current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is:

cfc62


I've been humming that old AC/DC song all morning:)  Don't ever use black as a card base but I'd been playing with some Ranger distress inks (squeezed lemonade, peacock feathers, worn lipstick) and water and thought these bright colors would pop even more against black:



Modern Landscape Border from Memory Box was die cut from black cardstock.  Cloud from Hero Arts Right At Home set was embossed on vellum.  Sentiment and heart are from the same set.  Card base was embossed with a Stampin' Up/Sizzix chevron embossing folder.

Back to the craft room - I need to start working on some cards I actually need :)

Love your watercolor background, Robin - so beautiful with that sweet die cut and the vellum cloud!! Hmmm - wish I had a dollar for every card I've made that I didn't need at that moment. Luckily they usually come in handy later...

Robin, you are an amazing stamper! How very clever to use the die cut image...so, so cool!

You are such a master of scenes, Robin! That vellum cloud has my heart (how did you attach it - that bugs me about vellum!). So darn cute - I can just feel that storm and want to run home. Amazing!

Robin - what a fantastic scene! I love the polaroid frame, the little landscape border, the watercolors, the heart, and the embossed background. Is that everything? 'Cause I love everything about this card! Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
