Black and White plus One Color

Hope everyone is having a great week. I am having an artsy week. Monday evening, I went to an art show at my daughter's place of work. Beautiful watercolors and printmaking. Last evening, I began a new class on Pastels at our local Art Association. Sadly, not enough signed up, so the class is canceled. Tonight, my two oldest grandchildren art having Art Night at their school. I will view their art projects and they will also sing. Fun times! My post today is for the most recent Bloggers' Challenge to make a project that is Black and White and a Splash of One Other Color. I decided to use the images from Artistic Outpost's Secretary Pool and stamped them directly onto the card base. The handles of the scissors and the pencils are watercolored with Festive Berries Distress Ink. I resisted the urge to add distressing around the card edges as it would have introduced another color. Embellishments include a strip of ribbon, a re-purposed button, Scrapper's Floss, some color appropriate paper clips, a snippet of black crochet lace and some black Liquid Pearls. Now, who to send this off too!!! Have a great evening. Best wishes, Yvonne

Love this stamp set! Reminds me of the days I was a office manager and actually was quite organized! Great use of the images!
