So I had an idea to do the a black / white version of a card.  Here is how it turned out…

Close to My Heart ~ CTMH ~ CatScrapbooing ~ June SOTM ~ It's Your Day to Sparkle

So I decided to do two version which were the opposite of each other.  I started with the one on the left.

Close to My Heart ~ CTMH ~ CatScrapbooing ~ June SOTM ~ It's Your Day to Sparkle

I used Versamark ink on the Black cardstock and then heat embossed with White Embossing Powder. I then used our Watercolor Paints to color the flowers and cake.  I find the pencils are not able to get as rich of a color on the darker cardstock.  I used the pink pattern from the Mix-in Paper pack and the Black & White Polka Dot paper from Craft On Paper Pack.  I used the white dots from the Black & White Dots.

I used Versamark ink on the White Daisy cardstock and then heat embossed with Black Embossing Powder. I then used our Watercolor Paints to color the flowers and cake.  I find the pencils are not able to get as rich of a color on the darker cardstock.  I used the Mix-in Paper pack with the pink pattern and the adorable heart paper. I use the black of the Black & White Dots.
