Better Late than Never? FS280 - Emily Keaton



I chose this card of Emily's because of the layout, which I saw differently than reality (people who know me will know that this is not an uncommon occurence!). Emily's card has a black front with photo corner die cuts on each corner. I saw it as a white card with a cool black shape on top and then a lovely big circle in the middle of the square (my favourite). I used a Hero Arts Chrysanthemum outline stamp and copics. I used Melon Mambo, and Basic Black, this week's Dynamic Duo challenge colours.




Sticking with the Dynamic Duo colours for this week, I echoed Emily's graphic use of rings on the background. Hmmm. Does this need a black frame around the white layer? You know I love a good black frame!  Stampin' Up (Mixed bunch flower and Fabulous Phrases thanks).

Thanks for the inspiration, Emily, and congratulations on being this week's Featured Stamper!

Two great cards. The first one has an Asian feel. You have an interesting lot of stamps. Som of which are finding their way onto my "to have " list.
Then we have the question - whose reality is real? Because until you pointed out the photo corners I thought it was a white background with interestin black matting???

Great cards. The second card is so striking. I think a black mat addition would look great, but it is fine the way it is! Thanks for playing with us at Dynamic Duos!

Ardyth, I am always amazed by your creations! So clean and graphic. And I'm so honored that you chose to CASE me and play along with FS280. I just LOVE your takes on both of these!! It was fun to read how you saw that first card--I had to think hard about it myself ;). Thanks so much!!!

Hi Ardyth ... great cards but what did you use in the middle of your circle ? It looks like sparkly things. :)
