ABC Challenge:Two-tone

Finally found time to make up a card for the ABC Challenges, they're up to T so its taken me a while!! This week the request is to keep it simple and make a card in two tones.

I've used some terracotta and black CS, and put the blac
k through a cuttlebug folder before placing it. The tree branch stamp is Taylored Expressions and its been embossed with black hologram powder. The sentiment is SU, and embossed in terracotta. I added some black pearls to tie the sentiment strip to the base, and reflect something of the shine of the tree.

It would have been so much easier to use black and white, but not so much of a challenge.


  1. It almost looks as if you hand stitched the branch and leaves. Very cool!

  2. I was going to say to that it looks like the branch was stitched (but was beaten to the punch), this is so cool looking. I think the coral color looks awesome with the black.


love to know what you think.......
