Black & White Wedding


A couple of years ago I saw a technique on a Memory Box blog called Out of the Box. Sue T gave a tutorial for colouring the catalina wreath, inking it with Versamark and clear embossing it. I loved it so much it spurred me to buy the die!

For this card I cut the wreath once each in white and black. The black flowers were cut out and glued onto the white ones. Then I inked and clear embossed. If there are any patches that aren't well covered just ink up and emboss again. The wreath almost feels like it's become plastic! 

I'm going to link up to the challenge at Cuttlebug Mania, where the theme is black and white. It's ok to use a tiny bit of colour and you also need to use a manual die cutting machine like a Cuttlebug or Big Shot.

Materials used: Memory Box Catalina Wreath; Versamark ink & clear embossing powder; Leathergrain base card; ribbon, sentiment sticker and pearls from stash. 

Thanks for visiting :)

JUST stunning. Love the drama of black and white and the off centre pearls in the flowers.
