Pinterested Inspired Birthday


I know - you're wondering if you're in the right place! Yes, it's me, Ms Black and White with a Rainbow, trying my hand at something completely different. It's still pretty graphic but in a prettier way than my normal style.

I was inspired by this photo on Pinterest:



What attracted me to this photo was the two colours of grey and the two shades of red. I have 3 matching flowers in different sizes from the Stamps of Life. I placed all 3 on my acrylic block and stamped in Poppy and then in Coral, placing them so they look 'random'. I then added the Waltzingmouse leaves in Sand and Whisper. I used a Stampin' Up sentiment and finished it off with some little pearls. And I barely finished it before it was sold, so I guess it's good to branch out once in a while!

While this is a bit different than your usual style, I can still see you in this card. It's lovely, and still CAS. Love that gray and the baby pearls. Am really liking this, Ardyth! Bev

The grey is stunning with these colors! Isn't grey the new black? (according to those that are up to date with fashion trends!)

Perfect random placements of the flowers. Everything is sooooo well balanced!

Love the bold sentiment too!

Whenever I try to stamp randomly it always ends up looking totally uniform but this looks great! Love the red and coral with the grey.
