FM96 It's About Time

What's black and white and read all over?  That's a question that popped into my head while thinking about this week's Friday Mashup challenge.  And what's it got to do with time?  Well, I thought since we were challenged to use black, I would go back in time and make a black and white card.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
1. Make a project with a "Time Theme".
2. Or Make a project using the "Color Black".
3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project with a " Time theme using the color Black".

Of course I had to add some Newsprint DSP to my card.  The B&W photo focal point was created by brayering with Basic Gray ink.  The umbrella was paper-pieced, and the watches were stamped on a spare piece of faux mother of pearl card stock I had in the scrap pile.

Stamps: Rue Des Fleurs, Loving Thoughts; Paper: Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Whisper White, Newsprint DSP; Ink: Basic Gray, Basic Black, Black Stazon, Basic Gray marker, Basic Black marker; Accessories: Pearl Jewels, Dotted Scallop Ribbon border punch, Color Spritzer Tool, Aquapainter, Brayer, Lacy Brocade EF, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!

This is so soft and pretty with a lovely vintage feel to it. Your watch parasol is so beautiful and the lake peeking out behind the greeting is a lovely touch.
