PTI January Blog Hop

This month's theme for the PTI Blog Hop, is black. It's all the rage as a trend now, especially after the introduction of the faux chalkboard technique, that I must say I'm not necessarily eager to try myself :)
However, I love the bold look of colour against black, and I really dig embossing on a black cardstock.


I used both of the things mentioned, on the card below. Background Basics: Woodgrain stamps were clear embossed, and the sentiment from Year Of Flowers: Daffodils, white embossed on a black card.


I added the flowers from Delightful Dahlias, die cut and coloured with Copics. I wanted to have lots of texture on the flowers, hence the rather crude feathering technique used for the colouring.
For the base of the card, I used Autumn Rose cardstock.
Thanks for taking a peek! Mwah,
