LSC204 Basic Black

Well, Tilda isn't in Basic Black, but the card is! This is for the Limited Supply Challenge on SCS yesterday! What a great one! Black really does make the colors POP! I had to take my dew drops off and alter them by putting a white punched dot under them so their color shows. I wish I'l have thought to do this first because it did get a little messy looking! In other words, please don't look too closely!
I used Real Red sponged with distress Walnut Stain to darken it behind the Cosmo Cricket (Chemistry) paper and behind Tilda. I used my stencil brushes and Adirondack inks in Cranberry and Butterscotch to make the background behind her.
The letters on the tag are made with an Alphabet set from Papertrey Ink. Tiny little things!
Tilda is colored with copic markers and I punched the leaves from Kiwi Kiss and sponged them with Walnut too. The Hydrangeas are from Prima and the ribbon is from my stash!
The whole card is a little more striking in real life, but I'm photographically challenged!
Thanks so much for coming by to look! I really appreciate it!
