Make Mine Pink and Black

I love pink and black together and was thrilled that Cindy Haffner, our CCEE Stampers challenge hostess for April, chose this combination for our color challenge this week!

I colored the sundae image (by DeNami Design) with Copic markers.  I then dotted the glass with black fine tip marker and covered with Crystal Effects.  For the ice cream, I added a little Icicle Stickles.  The cherry on top is a small Basic Gray Eva button.

I created my own designer paper using my MFT Die-namics flower.  I cut the flowers out of Pretty in Pink and the leaves out of Certainly Celery.  I added 1/4" circle black dots to the center and then added small white circles from my double circle punch to the very center.  I glued these to black cardstock and added white dotting with a Signo Gel Pen.  I then ran this piece through my Big Shot using the Square Lattice embossing folder.  This technique is referred to as Embedded Embossing.  The Square Lattice embossing folder works exceptionally well for this technique as it presses the flowers into the black cardstock.

Other supplies I used are oval Nestabilities, 1/8" thick dimensionals for my oval panel, pink and white striped ribbon, and pink flirty ribbon.

Why not play along with us by pulling out your pink and black and showing us what you've got?  Check out the details for playing, as well as seeing Joanne's, Tosha's, Cindy's, Shirley's, and Frances's designs, on our CCEE Stampers blog!

Thanks for swinging by!  I love your visits and appreciate your comments!

Charlene, I love your card, it is absolutely beautiful. It really pops. I like how you embossed the flowers and the crinkled ribbon.
