This week at the Play Date Cafe the color challenge is another color splash with black and white as the primary colors with a splash of another color as an accent. We had our choice of pink, gold or copper and I chose the copper for my card in this challenge because I thought it was a more unusual color combination.
For this card, I used a wonderful black and white flocked damask designer paper from Sweet Romance called of all things "Black Damask Flocked"!!! I thought this paper was so elegant and dramatic. It has a wonderful feel to it as well.
For the splash of copper color, I heat embossed the Stampin Up "Ornate Blossom" stamp with copper powder from Ranger on black cardstock. The edges were punched using a Fiskers "Lace" corner punch and then the edges sponged with white craft ink to soften the edges and look. To make the punch stand out in the corners of the image panel, I inserted a bit of white paper behind and used a corner punch to set off the upper left corner for interest.
