Teal and Black...
Another sample form the shows a couple of weeks ago using the brilliant teal foundation card which I am always forgetting about! i love the way this works so well with the black and white a great way to revitalise black and white.
I stared by cutting the triple gemini die in order on teal, then the outline and detail in white with a black mat cut with just the outline. Next I cut the first three dies in a piece of white and finished with the last outline in a further piece of teal.
I trimmed each piece of card making each piece slightly thinner to create the layers.
for the focal element I cut the bruges die in white and backed it with black. next i layers up the detail dies in the set finishing with the stamped sentiment from my nasturtium everyday sentiments.
I finished with layers of teal black and an embossed layer of white. I added black stick on pearls at the edges and used a couple of strips of teal and black seam binding to balance the bow.
