It's a Twofer

Hello.  Welcome.  The craft room clear up continues.  I'm even thinking I may take the plunge and link up with WOYWW (What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday), which I always said I would never do LOL.  Mostly cos it has always been so difficult to see where the desk actually was!!  Whilst sorting and cleaning the postman called and delivered some happy mail.  Ooh goody, goodies!!  New stamps from Stamploration.  Well, dusting must wait, let's get inky.......

Yesterday I was over at Timeout where they want us to CASE a lovely card by Deepti.  I was struck by an idea to go black on black and came up with this

I was playing about with layers until I had a eureka moment.  I cut my black card base using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die.  Then I stamped Stamplorations large Black Hooded Oriole and sentiment with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.  To get my white break I got busy with the craft knife.  I scratched away the black card surface to expose the white core.   Gotta love a contrasting core.

  1. Here I was thinking I wish I had the white ink you used to create that white break in the background. Even more cool you simply scratched the black away! I need to dig through storage to find my stash of Core-dinations card stock! Awesome card, Gail, and hope you have a great weekend! Hugs :o)
