One and Only

I spent the whole afternoon stamping today and it was great.  Unfortunately, of the 4 items I made, 3 were for upcoming DT obligations so I can only share one card at this stage.

I made this card for the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches and the monochromatic/baker's twine challenge at Friday Mashup.



I went for a black and white color scheme and pulled out an old, retired set called Bronc Buster.  The main image is white-embossed on black and popped up on dimensionals.  I deliberately kept the card clean and simple, letting the starkness of the colors and single image stand out.  The two brads are also retired.




Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  Bronc Buster
Cardstock:  Basic Black; Whisper White
Ink:  Versamark
Accessories:  Chevron EF; Finishing Touches Edgelit; White Baker's Twine; Star Brads; White EP

ETA:  This card was chosen for a Glamette Award at Friday Mashup.

Cheers
Karren
