BLACK and WHITE with a SPLASH of Color

hello my friends and welcome to my blog
firstly I am so honoured and thrilled to be
 Guest designer at Orange Paperie  this month .
the challenge is Black and White with a splash of color 
I chose lime green as my added color to blend in with this divine photo of my favourite flowers.

to go to the blog and be inspired.


'Favourite' 
 I began with white cardstock, added some stamps with black ink , a few lime splashes and stitching .

 lots of layering with tags and dies.
 more layering 
chipboard title 


I always love the statement a black and white layout makes, 
and by adding a splash of color 
draws even more attention to the dramatic feel of B and W .
hope I have inspired you to have a play this month 
until next time
