Less is More #379 - Black White Plus One Other Colour

BLACK WHITE & GOLD


I was going through my bits bag when I saw these black die cut balloons that I had planned to use for a New Year's card but ended up making something else.  I die cut them from Whisper White cardstock and then ink blended Black Soot distress ink with a mini blending tool. For some sheen, they were covered with Perfect Pearls.  The strings were die cut from black cardstock.  



A piece of gold foil cardstock was sitting on my desk, and that was how I decided my third colour. 😁  The sentiment was white heat embossed on a black strip.  All pieces were added to an A2 size Whisper White panel, then mounted it to a white card base to finish. 




Ready to join in the fun?  For some more beautiful inspirations from my teammies, head over to the LIM blog HERE.  Thank you for stopping by.  Enjoy your day.
