Finished Card

Finished Card

The Michael Strong Sketch challenge for August to September was also a colour challenge – black and white!

Here I am almost at the last minute (as usual) but I did get it finished.

I made a z-fold card from an A4 sheet of black card and half-cut the ovals so they would ‘swing’. The large coffee cup was stamped onto a white oval the same size as the swinging part and the smaller ones onto a smaller-sized die-cut.

I didn’t like the look of the stark white (I do seem to have a problem with white space!) so I cut masks from post-its and covered the stamped images. Using a texture stamp I added the speckles around the ovals.
