Color Hues #14

Afternoon peeps.
What did I say about March moving on a pace? Well it's already halfway so it's time for a brand new colour challenge over at Color Hues, here's my interpretation.

I had so many ideas for a card but decided to give this Creative Endeavours Signature Terrace stamp it's first inking. This is the second of their scene stamps I've used, Fisherman's Wharf was used here awhile back. 
I stamped a couple of the images onto black card with Versamark then used some white detail EP and heat set. The tall houses suggested a tall, slim card, so I trimmed one panel down and fussy cut the roof line. I repeated the process with the second but cut more away, adding a few extras from the cut away pieces to increase the height.
I found some black glitter card in my stash so decided to use this for the sky and added it to a piece of scrap copy paper that I had cut to size, layering the houses on top, the top layer I added some fun foam behind for extra dimension. To reflect the frosty sky, I added Wink of Stella to the rooves, sadly this doesn't show up in the pic! I left the sentiment off the front as I couldn't find the exact one I wanted. It could be a Christmas card or anything else I want really.
So that's all from for the moment but please check out the rest of the Color Hues team here for more black and white inspiration.

  1. What a striking card! I love the way you layered the pieces to create the slimline card--so creative!

  2. A brilliant black and white composition Julie. It reminds me very much of those cottages by Michael Powell. Love the long tall design and I think it would make a wonderful Christmas card. Hope the sun is shining for you xx

  3. Very striking. Reminds me of some of your paintings.

  4. A very striking mono card Julie, thanks for joining in with our Monochromatic theme at Stamping Sensations challenge.

  5. Super monochrome card xxx

  6. Love this Julie! Layering the pieces to create a slimline card was very creative, I don't think my brain would have ever thought of that. This reminds me of San Francisco where the houses appear to be on top of each other. Brings me back to days when we could travel! Take care!

  7. Black and White together always makes a stunning card. Thanks for joining the challenge at Simply Create Too Challenge Blog.

  8. Thank you for joining Stamping Sensations with this entry, good luck.
    Happy crafting
