What do you do with black flowers?

sc157-ffg-and-elements.jpgThis weeks sketch at SCS answered the question – just what am I going to do with these black prima flowers I received in a kit ages ago?  They’ve been sitting in my stash of things for well over a year and every time I saw them I thought – why don’t I just give them away – I can’t do anything with black flowers!  Well, I kept them and one was the perfect accessory for this card.

I stamped and emossed the flower in black on glossy and sponged ballet blue over it, then attached it to another piece of white then black.

I stamped a flourished elements using Palette Noir on another piece of ballet blue and mounted that on black.  Both this and the main image were mounted on ballet blue, then on a white card. 

All stamps from Flourishes:

Celebrate – Flourished Words

Swirls – Flourished Elements

    Yea for using your stash, that we sometimes are about ready to give up on. Yes it does compliment the card well…

    Hi Nancy… Thanks for the lovely comments and yes the beady things are called Dew Drops from “Robin’s Nest”.. They come in all different colors and are a fun embellishment on cards.
