Avery Elle: Classic Red Petals

Hey guys!  Just one more card with the new Avery Elle set Petals and Stems before the month is out:)  This time I used the large leaf stamp to create a graphic background in black and white.  I love the way you can dress these flowers up or down.  I used the one-Copic method on the flower again.  


For a tiny bit of drama, I used a thin sliver of gold between the stamped panel and the card base.  Yes, I'm still loving the gold but it just feels right!   I was hoping that the black, white, red, and gold combo would feel traditional but still a little modern:)


It's been so much fun with all the new March Avery Elle goodies!  Don't forget to stop by  Heather's blog today, she's also got a card to share!  

Mahalo and Aloha,
jj

  4. So elegant! Love the little peek of gold and the flower is gorgeous! Loving the kind of sketchy shading (and I don't mean 'sketchy') and how the red pops.
