Colour Splash

This is my second post today ... I have a card that I made for 2 challenges ... unlike so many of you ... I can never seem to make one thing for a number of challenges ... I don't think my brain can handle it ... So I have combined the Color Splash challenge at The Play Date Cafe ... using this fabulous inspirational photo ... 

With the Sketch Challenge at WaltzingMouse ... 

         

And this is my take on both ....


actually it is a color splash because I used the same technique as I did with THIS card ... I literally splashed black acrylic paint onto white CS ....


My rose is handmade ... not sure that you can see the "dew drops" created with glossy accents .... I stamped white CS using the WaltzingMouse Text - It stamps ... then used Spellbinder dies to get my scalloped edge ...


The other stamps used are a Penny Black (foliage) for the leaf stem and a digital Hero Arts (friends) stamp from Two Peas ...
I hope you are having a great start to the week ... I'll be back tomorrow
Keep safe

EDIT.... just seen that I can also enter The Shabby Tea Room challenge too with this card
"Get Creative" is the new challenge today set by Clare ... which means NO patterned papers allowed and a handmade embellishment ... Whoopi! I got 3 challenges in ... that's a record breaker for me!

Now I'm back on official business...I initially saw your card on Waltzingmouse, now I'm visiting from the Play Date Cafe! Your card is a wonderful example of what we mean by color splash. A black and white background with that amazing burst of purple color. Thanks for playing along with us at the Play Date Cafe!
