CASEing Genius Challenge Take #2

Hello!  I'm back real quick with one more card based on the CASEing Genius Challenge currently going on at Kelly Latevola's blog, and I'm so happy I get to play once more before the linky is closed!  This time I was inspired by the funny and kind Darnell Knauss.  She leaves so of the nicest messages of encouragement, she's hilarious (you must check out her blog), and her work is just so awesome!  Here's the card of her's that inspired me...


And here is what I've created...


I didn't stray too far from her original card because I loved it so much and really wanted to recreate that white and black contrast.  I started by heat embossing my Altenew images in white on a separate black panel.  I then went over some of the flowers with Perfect Pearls, and added blue stickles.  Once it was all dry I trimmed my panel, taking one section out and stamped and embossed a Technique Tuesday sentiment in between the two pieces.  I was slightly bummed that my embossing buddy didn't do such a great job with keeping all of those pesky embossing powder strays away, but I really do love the effect of the white embossing on black.

I am also linking this up to the Virginia's View: Textures Challenge

Thank you so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!
Lisa
