My project today uses the Carols of Christmas stamp set and the Merry little Christmas Designer Series Paper. #cutitnothoardit
When I opened the pack of Designer papers and saw this piece (that I’ve used as the back layer with the leaves), it was so “in your face” stark, black and white. I needed to soften it to use and so I got out my sponge brayer and added some Old Olive ink to take away that bright white! Sometimes we get so put off by the contrast of black and white and wonder how we will use it, but if you colour the white areas softly, it can totally change the look!
Adding the layer of gold glimmer and the gold bow adds a touch of class!

I love your card Kate. What a great idea to colour the white leaves on the DSP – I wouldn’t have thought to do that! The gold glimmer certainly adds that touch of elegance. 🙂
The touches of gold certainly make your card pop!
Your card looks fabulous, Kate! You are so right about using a touch of colour to soften stark DSP.
