Black Background Flowers

Just Us Girls #527 Trend Week

My card for the Black Background trend week challenge #527at Just Us Girls didn’t quite turn out as I expected. LOL…I think I may add some more color to my flowers before sending this one out the door. I stamped first in GKD white pigment ink, heat set it then stamped in Wild Lilac. The lilac did not give me as much color as I would have liked to have unfortunately. The stamps set and die is GKD’s Sunshine & Love stampTV kit and the sentiment is Hero Arts Happy Stamp & Cut.

Thanks for stopping in for a look.

  1. Maybe try gold for the strips and bold sentiment and of course splatter in gold? Just a thought, you will get it looking its best, i have no doubt.

    1. I can see why you are not completely happy with this one Gayle, although I quite like it personally. Adding a bit more colour to it would make a difference but it isn’t absolutely necessary.

      1. Thanks, Johanna, I was definitely looking for more color. I may try adding it in colored pencils. Judy and your black background cards were really gorgeous.

  2. I like the design. It is nice with the subtle color, but I love bright colors, so a bit more color will jazz it up.

  3. I like the subtle coloring on your flowers, Gayle. If you’re not happy I know colored pencils work wonders on black. I’m just glad that you shared your card with us at Just Us Girls.

  4. I love the effect you got from over-stamping in lilac Gayle and think it would be perfect as a sympathy card. For your Happy Thoughts greeting you could always add more intense colour with coloured pencils if you liked! Vicky x

    1. Thanks so much for your tips and comments, Vicky, I will try the colored pencils. It was another great JUGS challenge.
