Black Floral (in white!) - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello everyone :o)

It's my day to post over on the DigiStamp Boutique blog, and I've been playing with the gorgeous Black Floral set... It's supposed to be a sympathy card for a man - what do you think?  Is it appropriate?


The images are all black, but I wanted them white so I've changed the colour in PagePlus... I started with a solid digi paper, layered the image on and made it white, then did the same with the sentiment and printed them out.  Because the digi paper is printed on white card, you can then use a sandpaper block around all the edges to take the colour off, giving a white distressed edge... I quite like this effect!

Items Used
White linen cardstock - Papermill Direct
Digi stamp and sentiment - Black Floral set
Solid digi paper - Pink Petticoat
Viva Pearl Pen in Ice White - MCH

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
MAWTT - CAS

We've been back to the vets with Bram (cat) again this evening, and he's now booked in for blood tests and general anaesthetic tomorrow morning as it looks like an abscess is brewing... fingers crossed he'll be ok, poor old man.

Off for a catch up and then I need to make a start on a card for my mum and her hubby as it's their anniversary in a couple of days... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)
