Hullo there! I was absolutely THRILLED to win over at AMICHE di SCRAP a couple of months ago with the LO HERE...
So, I was asked to Guest for their current challenge, which is to use a BLACK BACKGROUND!
This does not come naturally to me, &  I thought I might struggle - but strangely, it came together rather quickly. I think [THINK!!!] the secret is to keep your colour palette simple. Well, that's my theory:)
 A 3rd Eye flair, paper string from Crazy Monday Kits, some old ric rac stash!
 I used VERY old sticker letters as my background, along with that diamond 3rd Eye stamp, that I've heat embossed with silver embossing powder. The white drips are a mix of Liquid Paper [White Out, I think some of you call it, or Correction Fluid???] & also white nail polish!
 My chippy title was from a package win at Let's Get Shabby...& the Sharpie did an awesome job!
 The smile for the camera tab is also from a prize I got over at Scrap the Girls, from Flutterby Designs....
 ...& some 7 Dots Studio goodies, from a random draw prize I won over at Scrapki Wyzwaniowo! I am sooo lucky with my scrapping:)
 And this boy is a LOT taller than this now! They sure do breed 'em BIG these days!!!
You've been VERY patient. Here's the whole page:
Thanks for looking - I highly recommend AMICHE di SCRAP - they have 2 challenges over the month & the BEST thing is that they are open 'til the end of the month! So take a peek - use the 'translate' button - & have fun!!!!
