SIP #81 Color Challenge - Black, White, and a Pop of Color!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!  I hope you are warm where ever you live.  We've gotten some snow here in Middle Tennessee and have been down to single digits and we are NOT used to that!  I was off work last Friday and stayed home Saturday and Sunday.  This week is supposed to warm up to the 60's and I am soooo ready for that!  I'm beginning to think living in Florida might be a good retirement plan!  The older I get the less I enjoy cold weather!  Brrr!  Well since it is Tuesday, it's time for another Stamp, Ink, Paper Challenge.  This week it's all about Black, White, and a pop of color!  So many options with this one!

I recently bought a stamp set from Stamp, Ink, Paper's online store from Concord & 9th called "You are enough" and decided to use the fun flower from that set!

I love this sketchy flower and it would look awesome in so many colors.  My mom grows many different types of lilies and that is what this flower reminds me of.  The floral image has an outline and then two different stamps that fill in color.  I used SU Basic Black Archival Ink for the sketch of the flower on Neenah 110# Crest Solar White cardstock.  The large fill stamp was stamped with  SU Flirty Flamingo (stamped twice) and the darker fill in section was stamped with SU Watercolor Wonder.  The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp set "You Matter" and the You was the coordinating You die.  I layered three layers of black for the You die cut and used Ranger Multi Medium Matte  to adhere each layer to the other and the finished word to the card.  I cut the first layer out with a Mama Elephant Creative Cuts Scallop Die and added it to a  Neenah 110# Crest Solar White Card Base that measured 4 1/4" x 11" and was scored at 5 1/2" for a top folding card.  To finish my card off I adhered 3 Pretty Pink Posh dew drops with Ranger Multi Medium Matte.  I'm going to give this beautiful birthday card to my daughter later this month!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Blessings!  Tina
