Black And Cream




I think black and cream is my favorite color combination. Second would be aqua and pink. Black and cream reminds me of ancient book pages, aged newspapers, and antique handwritten letters. All of those make my heart beat faster. I'm (very slowly) redoing my bedroom to black and cream. I'm thinking burlap, swirly black vintage frames, and chippy black furniture. I want to take a huge blank canvas and cover it in antique book covers. I think it would look fabulous hanging over my bed. I made these two cards today. The photos aren’t great because we are in the middle of a dust storm and the light is strange. Got to love west Texas weather! Oh and almost ALL the supplies for the cards was Papertrey Ink.

I am totally enjoying this post today. The cards are wonderful. I can't get over how striking that dress form is in black and cream. I wish I could make cards like that, I could if I copied it, but your card is so natural, I am sure this is totally your style. Beautiful.

Love the card with the dress form. Cream and black are so appealing. What stamp is the border around the button card element? Great job.
