Back to Black

Hello.  Welcome.  I started with the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches, inspired by the Verve and Viva Las Vegas Stamps mood boards and came up with this.  

I used a black base card and stamped the VLVS line of hanging shoes and embossed with white powder.  I masked the shoes and used versamark ink through a stencil then embossed with white powder.  

I cut the celebrate Sizzix diecut and embossed with lots of black powder to make a faux enamel embellishment.  I added it to the card on a vellum banner.
