FSC "Blank and White with a Hint of Red"

'Black and White with a Hint of Red'
is the new challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges this fortnight.

If you are into Valentine's Day cards, this one is ideal
- and if not, then you can still join in....
you can pretty much make any project you like as long as it is black and white with just a hint of red 
(not too much red though, the black and white need to be the dominant colours in this challenge).

I thought that I would make a Valentine's card for a friend of mine
for this challenge.
He makes me laugh a lot with the weirdest jokes 
so I thought of using Charlie for this one.


I have had the TH heart stencil forever, and this is the first time that I have used it.  
It was interesting that I could achieve an ombre effect through the stencil by just adding a little more ink here and there.

And seeing as I have now learnt to use my cropodile
well...I couldn't resist using it to add a little more red to the card...just a hint though.

And a little doodling to finish it off, just because I really enjoy it.

I hope you like my card.

The girls at FSC have come up with some inspiring and very different versions on the theme this time.
Please pop on over and check out the awesomeness of the fashionettes,
 be inspired and maybe join in the fun.
Flonzcraft are our sponsors this fortnight and have a generous $20 gift voucher up for grabs,
there are spotlights and a top 3 as well.

Remember, stamping must be the focal point of your creation...and then just follow the theme and you are win with a chance of winning!


Enjoy!

I love the layout of your card, particularly the use of black stamping around the edges to give it a sense of boundary.

What a great card, made me smile just looking at it, and your little pops of red are just so right. Glad you are enjoying using your cropadile at last, afraid mine only gets used to punch holes!
