Today’s Whiff of Joy Challenge is to create a black and white image. The Dare to Dream image was stamped in  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on  Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was cut and embossed with the Classic Frame die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin: T0, T1, T3    Hair: T2, T3, T5, T7    Skirt: T3, T5, T7, T9    Flowers: R81, R85, R89    Ground:W3, W5, W7    Background: W00, W0, W1). Another frame was cut and embossed, this time out of black cardstock and the image was adhered inside.

Three 4″ wide strips of Echo Park Yours Truly patterned paper were sanded and adhered to a 4″ x 5 1/4″ piece of the same paper pack. The paper was stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of white cardstock. Ivory Organdy Ribbon was tied around the paper layers and the image was adhered to them with dimensionals.

A Prima Flower was adhered to the lower left corner of the image. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered around the flower. A sentiment from the General Sayings stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock that had been cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The embossed part was colored with Copic Markers (W00, W0, W1). A piece of Yours Truly Paper was cut and embossed with the second smallest Classic Scalloped Heart die and the edges were sanded. The sentiment was adhered over the heart and both were taped to the upper right corner of the image.

The layers were adhered to the card base, a 4 1/2″ x 11 1/2″ piece of textured Crumb Cake cardstock and Baby Bling Rhinestones were adhered to the left hand side of the heart.

I hope you have time to participate in the challenge. It’s fun to color images in black and white. Plus as always, if you use Whiff of Joy images for your challenge card, you could win a prize.

Have a wonderful day!
