I took my colour choices from the Sunday Stamps Challenge which is all about Neutrals. My base, therefore, was Basic Black with a layer of Tip Top Taupe which I first embossed using the new Boho Chic embossing folder. My banner coordinates perfectly and is cut from the new Go Wild Designer Paper Stack and backed with Basic Black. For my image, I used Whisper White, also backed with Basic Black. Because I had planned to use the Mallard duck image but wanted a narrower rectangle, I cut around the wing tip and, quite honestly, love the effect. Funny how it happened...
I finished up with a star cut from the Crushed Cucumber design from the 2015-17 In-Color Designer Paper Stack, also backed with Basic Black and a few strands of Linen Thread tied around the card. Simple, neutral, for the most part, but very striking, don't you think?
