ColourQ Challenge # 208 - Black and White with one Colour.

As soon as I saw ColourQ's challenge for this week I knew my 'other' colour was going to be turquoise.
I have no idea why, it just popped into my head!!



 I have to say, I love this card. I have used the trendy blackboard background for the sentiment.
I haven't read any 'how to's' on this technique yet. I just rubbed a bit of white pastel on the black cutout with a dry tissue. I think this achieved the blackboardy look .




Stamps: Hero Arts sentiment, Avery Elle honey comb border
Dies: Spellbinders medium rolled rose, foliage hand punch
Paper: Neenah White, Kaisercraft black, Blackboard and turquoise background Pixel Scrapper
Other: B/W twine, grosgrain ribbon, flatback pearl, rhinestones.

Thanks for dropping by.
