It's Not All Black and White

One Stitch At A Time's New Challenge has started over on the challenge blog and for those of you who aren't still humming the tune to The A Team, (because it's their turn tis week!!) pop over and have a look at all the fabulous cards the DT have come up with... the challenge for this week is...

Black and White and One Other Colour...

I've used Stitchy's Image, that gorgeous fairy, 'Just Relex', which you can find over on the...
The purple background on the first card was in my download stash and I put the image, paper and the over lay of branches and balcony, actually made to print onto acetate (from My Craft Studio) all into the My Craft Studio programme (first addition, which was originally a freebie from Create and Craft's newsletter) and printed it all out together and then attached it to some of Susan's swirly papers.
As you can see by the first two pictures the top card didn't at first have a black back ground, but after taking a few pictures I felt that 'something' was missing...did you notice?

On the second card I did the same thing, the purple paper was in my 'Stitchy ' folder, so that's where that must have come from ages ago! but then I also added some of Susan's (Crafty Chaos) lovely spotty paper and printed it all out as one sheet and then fixed that over the black card. You'll also find Crafty Chaos here
I added a bow, paper-clips, two Woodware Brads and some micro glitter from stash to the first card, but kept the second card plain. So, even though the cards look like there's loads of layers, there isn't. Bit of a cheat really! Before I confuse you any more, pop over and join in the Challenge! As easy as Black and White...with one other colour of course!
