Study in Red and Black



This post is for the new challenge over at Blogger's Challenge. This time around, we are working from the sketch above. I recently was gifted with a package of wine labels from a new and precious friend, who is a fellow blogger and card artist. My card is made using one of these beautiful French wine labels. I also stamped a new stamp image I acquired recently from Recollections on beautiful cream colored watercolor paper with Barn Red Distress Ink. The stamped image, wine label and background paper were all matted with black paper for definition. Scalloped edge oyster colored lace, a bit of black and gold ribbon and a button I picked up earlier today complete my card. For a change of pace, I photographed my card by our gold fish pond. My poor fish could not understand why mommy wasn't feeding them! (I took their food out with me and fed them just after finishing my picture taking.) I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Best, Yvonne
