This is for Crafty Creations challenge where we had to use mostly one colour so I decided to challenge myself too and try for various shades of black:) I used cotton to create the background with chalks starting with a light grey and going all the way to Balck. I then samped the image of the flower swirl design on the sides first just using basic dye ink pad and then using a black pigment ink pad and embossing with black glitter. I used the black glitter and embossed the Happy Birthday greeting and also the bird and cut the bird out and used pop dots to place it there. I also used a cut out design with the hearts and then the inside of the card I also embossed with black glitter so it shows up, well as you see here-at the bottom.Have a great day and enjoy the Oscars!

Flutter and Crafty!
Ok this first design is for Flutter by Wednesdays and we had to go by a photo as inspiration. I just loved the purple tree in the background so I tried to duplicate it. I used glossy white cardstock. I used purple embossing ink and Purple glitter for the trees. I then used my twinkling H2O's and coloured in the trees to give extra shimmer. I used different coloured ink pads and sponged in orange, pink, blue and purple for the background and in black dye ink, I plcaed in the swirly design (which I love and use alot-see below:)) and my fern and grass stamp pad. I then stamped my fairy and cut her out. I coloured her also with twinkling H2o's and made her a little green-she lives in the woods. I then ended it with using my stickles!
