A little bit of black and white........

I can not believe where the time  is going..... this is Win and Tonics 3rd Challenge. 

This month's  Challenge  is:

1. Colour -  Black and white and ……. any other colour of your choice

2. Technique - Glue Gun stuff - see here for some ideas -

3. Product - A little Rococo

4. Theme - one for the girls this month 

You can  choose one of these themes or use up to all four of them if you fancy a real challenge 


I have used 2 categories for my card - Black, white and another colour & One for the girls.

I've heard so many comments  from crafters of late  saying they have such a lot of craft goodies they don't  know what to use. I decided I would make a card using one set of dies cuts and a sentiment. 
I used Thinking of you - Essentials die set and Miniature Moments Best Wishes die.

To make the card I used an 8x8" scalloped card blank. I cut a square of pink card 7 x7" and added  a 63/4 x 63/4" black & white spotted card on top.

Using the patterned strip die in the Essentials die pack, I cut it in pink card. I then cut a strip of white card the same width as the die cut. Layered the white card onto some pink card which was 1/8" wider than the white layer. I stuck this layer onto the black & white card. I cut the pink patterned strip in half and stuck it on both edges of the white strip. You won't see the gap in the middle when the next layer is added.

The next later is a 5 x 5" white card with a 43/4 x 43/4" pink card on top. I placed these layers onto 3d foam pads to add some depth to the card.

I used the outer 3 layering dies and cut them in black spot, pink & white card respectively. 

The Best Wishes has been cut in pink and black card and layered on top of each other to give a dropped shadow effect.

To finish the card I've cut 2 small  corner dies in white. I've added some ebony Crystal drops to finish the design.

Hope you like my card and can take some inspiration from it.
