Another colour on black card ;o)

Hello all - well, it's a miserable day here and I am too tired to do much!  I now have carpet in the craft shed and a lovely pine table to work on - it's a bit battered and marked but that won't matter as I am sure to get paint and ink over it so I didn't want something I was frightened to work on ;o)  I'll post more pictures soon.
Anyway, on to the card.  It is using a SWALK image from Crafter's Companion and is stamped onto black cardstock and coloured with prisma pencils;

I used black magic card at the back and embossed it and sanded back.  The papers are from the SWALK CD Rom 2, matted and layered with Core'dinations card.  The sentiment is from the same stamp plate (A little bird told me) and is heat embossed in green pearl powder.  I added ribbon, twine, pins and buttons from my stash.  I think this is quite cute and just a bit different ;o)
Back soon - I have a golden wedding anniversary card to make and another wedding post box - plus I have to sort storage for the shed LOL  So much to do LOL

Back to Black

Well it's a rainy day here - such a shame for all those who have planned Jubilee events but I'm sure they will still all have a great time ;o)  I'm here with a crad which is a little unusual as I have stamped and coloured an image onto black card which I think has turned out quite well !  I have done a few of these types of cards lately so thought I would share the first one I did with you.  So I have used a stamp form the Crafter's Companion Humphrey range;

I stamped the image in white ink and then I coloured him in with Prisma pencils and blended with sansodor.  I'm not sure you can see in the picture but I added glossy accents to the rose and to Humphrey's button and heart on his dungarees.  The patterned paper is from the Humphrey's Corner CD Rom and I matted and layered onto core'dinations card stock.  I added vintage ribbon, bakers twine and a wooden button.  I finished with a couple of stick pins and a sentiment from the smae stamp set.  I did the inside of the card to match.  I don't think the photos really do it justice really as Humphrey's colours really stand out against the black card.

I hope you like this card - I'll post another sample later ;o)
