Never Black and White

Morning Friends ad Crafters, Today I am sharing a very simple card with you. Everyone needs a fast card every now and then and this one is just perfect for that. It would make a fantastic Birthday card, Well actually a card for any occasion, just by changing the sentiment to suit. Just adding a splash of colour using a few of the Brusho's.

You will Need:
Basic Rectangle Die
Black Fine Liner (Waterproof)
Copier Paper
White card 7 x 5''
Black Card Base
Archival Black Ink Pad
Pebeo Drawing Gum
Washi Tape
Brusho Yellow, Red, Blue and Violet

Step 1: Cut a rectangle from your copier paper to act as a mask, Keep both Parts.

Step 2: Position your mask over your stamping card, place your stencil over this.

Step 3: Ink through with Archival Black Ink using phat foam or similar.

Step 4: Remove the copier paper and stencil.

Step 5:  Use your fine liner to mark a frame around the image. Use the Archival Ink to stamp your sentiment. Protect the edges of your design with Pebeo Drawing Gum.

Step 6: Use Brusho and a water spritzer to add splashes of colour on your card.

Step 7: When dry remove the drawing gum and mount onto your black card base, leaving a narrow border.
