This week's Hero Arts challenge was to make a card featuring complementary colors. I chose black and white but ended up adding a smidge of red to help separate the butterfly from the background patterns. Part of the reason I chose black and white is that I have had that floral ribbon for about 5 years now and never used it!
The top part of the card was made using white embossing powder and a Hero Arts floral background. I then layered some striped paper (I think it is Doodlebug), some white cardstock, and a floral ribbon. I then stamped the Hero Arts butterfly onto black polka dot paper and cut it out. The saying is from a Hero Arts clear set. To finish the card, I added some Memory Box white pearls to the flowers on the ribbon.
I am currently without much access to the Internet because of housesitting, so I haven't been able to visit blogs like I usually do. Does anyone else suffer blog withdrawal from time to time? It feels like I am missing out!
