A Black and White Pear

Hello and welcome back to installment #2 of Dreamweaver's May Challenge: Black and White with a Pop of Color (and/or) Graduation! I hope you have been working on your own entry for this month's challenge. I'd hate for you to miss out on winning FREE STENCILS!!!

For my challenge post this week, I thought I'd stick with the Black and White theme.

I began my paste embossing the LL563 Pear stencil with Glossy White Paste and set it aside to dry.

I then repositioned the stencil over the dry image and positioned the NEW LX7013 stencil over that and paste embossed using Glossy Black paste. Note that I masked off the leaf with removal tape because I wanted to use that for my "pop" of color.

Once the pear was dry, I once again repositioned the stencil and using Dreamweaver Color Solutions Alcohol Ink in Citron and a Ranger Cut-n-Dry nib, I painted the leaf.

Then it was just a matter of cutting out the pasted image and layering it onto alternating layers of white and black.

I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to get working on your own creation. Remember, they don't need to be elaborate to be striking!
After leaving me some love (please!), head on over to the rest of the Dream Team's blogs. You will be amazed at how talented these women are! I know I am!

Hugs and until next week, happy creating! Hopefully soon I'll be back to more than just 1 post per week but it definitely is not this week!

Your comment, it doesn't "need to be elaborate to be striking" is right on! This is a pear-fect (sorry, I couldn't help it) example . . . stunning in its simplicity.

This is very cool! Love the Pinwheel Checkerboard on the unigue! And just the pop of bright green. Wonderful!

Perfect image for this challenge. The pattern on the pear looks like a zentangle piece. Great card!

I love this design. How cool that you did it all with glossy paste and alcohol ink?
