This month the Technique Junkies newsletter had a technique called Neutral Shadows, where you embossed an image with white embossing powder on white cardstock, then added shading with a neutral color. I fell in love this this technique.
But I wanted to change it up a bit, so I embossed on black cardstock with black embossing powder (or you can use clear). Here is what I came up with:
After embossing the image, I used Brilliance Moonlight White pigment ink to stipple around the image, giving it an aura or halo. I matted the image on white cardstock.
For the background I used white cardstock, then a layer of black, then a piece of black and white patterned cardstock. I punched a piece of black cardstock with a scalloped border. I used a white gel pen to make circles and adhered it to the background. I put my finished layer on top and, viola, I was done.
A pretty simple card. Please leave a comment here and let me know how you like it.
Have a great weekend!
