Good afternoon friends, I have another
card to share with you again today.
I went for a black and gold combo 
 this time. I stamped the gold
ink then overstamped it again to
 give it a softer edge.
Then I stamped the leaves in black.
I love the 'juiciness' of this ink. I 
tend to use it if I want a really 'black'
 I use my Memento black ink mainly for
 sentiments or other images where
I don't want too much ink.
For the white sentiment, I cut several 
layers and glued them together. I added
a few black and gold gems to finish 
the card.
I noticed the gold shows a bit over the
 black ink for some reason. No idea
 why that is!
Enjoy your day, I will be back with
 another card very soon ;)
ps. My DIL sent me this photo
 (see below card) of our
granddaughter enjoying some painting.
She seems very enthusiastic doesn't 
she lol.
