Black is not a colour I use very often and I’ve no idea why because I love the pop it’s given to my card.  I used the Hellebore Flower Die Set from Whimsy Stamps along with a sentiment from the Big Wishes Sentiments (digital) that was released this month.  Also new is the gorgeous Sprinkles Stencil,


I made the flowers from white Foamiran, which I coloured with soft pastels.


I inked up a piece of white card with Picked Raspberry distress oxide ink, then spritzed some water droplets on to lift some of the colour.  Once dry I applied some glitter paste through the stencil and wow!  The effect is dee-lish-us.  I didn’t have any striped paper and definitely wanted the black to lift the pink so I made a sheet in Photoshop.  I think I’ll be using this a lot more lol.
