Red and Black--Inspired By Rachael

When Rachael posted her little boxes, it reminded me how much I love the combination of black and red. It is eye catching and I've often worn the combination both in clothes and shoes. As a result, I set out to create a card using these colors. I turned to the same paper Rachael used, Rockabilly, mostly because it has shiny bits on it. Tart and Tangy is a favorite stamp set and the cherry stamp complements the paper. To make the cherries pop, I covered them with Crystal Effects.

Supplies used:
  • Stamp Set--Tart & Tangy
  • Designer Series Paper--Rockabilly
  • Ribbon--Ridinghood Red
  • Crystal Effects
  • Ink-Ridinghood Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip
I took half a dozen pictures of this card and gave up getting a good one. I am hopeless at photography.
