BLACK & WHITE WITH SILVER & GOLD


These are the colours for this weeks PLAY DATE CAFE challenge.

A while ago I bought this small journal with black pages thinking it would be interesting to start with a black page rather than a white one but that was as far as that idea went! So this challenge gave me the ideal opportunity to start it. An interesting idea that I am sure I will play with some more!!
As often happens with a scanned image the colours can be a bit dodgy! In this case the large letter S is actually silver metal with some black paint rubbed over it, the silver has got a bit lost! The only bit of gold I have used is the small heart.

Fabulous I always find black a bit of a hard colour to start with.

LoVe this! I am so glad you have been sharing your 'metals' with Sarah...my Christmas card from her featured it and it was lovely (at least I THINK that's what it was).

I can't tell you how much I appreciate you always playing along with us, Sue!

This is beautiful Sue. Love all the textures on it.
My OH gave me your new book for Christmas too and I just love it. Will definitely be having a go as you make it look so easy and the books are all stunning.
