Black & White Plus One...

Hello!

It's time for a new Designer's Choice Challenge for Repeat Impressions!  
This week, I am your challenge hostess, and my challenge to you is this:  
Create a card or project using the colors black, white, and one other color of your choice.  

Repeat Impressions Dream, Inspire, Hope (3101W), Fern (1708W),  Adirondack Lettuce Dye Ink, October Afternoon 905 Collection Green Button, Black Twine from my stash, Perfect Layers Tools
I chose the Dream, Inspire, Hope stamp for my focal piece.  I stamped the sentiment on this piece, and then attached it to the next largest white panel with some removable two sided tape. I then attached those two panels to the largest white panel, again, using removable tape.  The Fern was randomly stamped on the white panels.  When it looked the way I wanted, I pulled the panels apart, and mounted each of them on black mats. Voila!


Be sure to check out the Repeat Impressions blog, The House That Stamps Built, for challenge details!
We would love to see your card entered in the challenge!  Someone will be a lucky winner!


My fellow Rockstars have some beautiful creations to share with you today too!  Stop by and see what they have created with black, white, and one other color :)

My wonderfully straight edges were cut using my Perfect Layers Tools.  Remember, you can use any rotary cutter, or craft knife with these tools!  Be sure to use the code on my sidebar if you decide to try them - you'll get 5% off.  Check out their website for a video tutorial.


Thanks for stopping by!
Hugs and blessings,
