Mostly Black

This week's colour challenge at Less is More, sponsored by Clearly Besotted - love their products!! - is Mostly Black!  I must admit, being rushed for time, I thought the predictable, and chose to make a sympathy card.


I used a new flower die by Ultimate Crafts which cuts and embosses beautifully, cutting it out of the white base panel and from black script paper, which was re-inserted into the negative space.  At the last minute, I gently coloured the rose with Copics - just a hint of colour, because frankly, it was too sombre!  I'll look forward to using this die with other colours - a whole bunch of them (with leaves trimmed) would make a lovely Mothers' Day card mmmm!
