Here is the inspiration image.
I loved the pinks and blues against the black and I also like how, despite the black, the look has a soft, wispy feel. I pulled out my Momento Rose Bud, Teal Zeal, and Danube Blue inks along with some black cardstock to recreate that feel in card form.
I stamped the snowflakes from the Simple Snowflakes set by Tami Mayberry for Gina K. Designs onto the card, masking areas with washi tape. (The clear is currently sold out, but you can get the rubber for the same price!) I then misted the stamped snowflakes with a bit of water to give it a watercolor look, removed the tape and allowed that to dry. I cut strips of black cardstock to add the bold lines and then stamped the sentiment in black along the side. A pink May Arts ribbon finishes it off, much like the pink shoes in the photo! (Okay...on my blog they look kind of reddish, but on the original post with a white background, I was seeing pink. Either way, still a pop of color.)
I had SO much fun with this challenge! Here's hoping you will see me participating in this one more often now that I got started! Have a happy Tuesday!
