Black with a Touch of Color

Today's One Layer Wednesday Challenge over at Simplicity is to use black with a spot of color.

This is my set to go to for black & white. I love this feather and the dragonfly in this set.

I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the placement of the feather. Sometimes that little gadget is really handy!

I let the ink dry and put a drop of glue in the center and sprinkled a tiny bit of Olive Fine Supernova glitter. After that dried, I put a little bead of glue around the glitter and sprinkled the Aqua Fine Supernova glitter.

I drew some lines around the design and I was finished! Quick and easy if you don't count the stamping I did first and discarded!

Card Recipe
Stamps: Nature's Nest, Sincere Salutations
Ink: Basic Black
Paper: Whisper White
Acc.: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Fine Supernova Glitter, Black SU Marker

Now I need to go and clean up my mess! And judging by the time, I need to start some supper.

I had fun today. Hope you did too. Thanks for stopping by. I love hearing what you think.
