Using Black Cardstock

Hi! I've made a couple of cards inspired by the current Happy Little Stampers CASE challenge. I find it quite difficult to make cards using black cardstock. For both of these cards I stamped and embossed with Stampendous Shabby White - I love the glitter in it! I coloured over the embossing powder with promarkers on the first card, to add a little bit of colour. I used gems and liquid pearls on the second one.

I'm entering this one in the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS: "Midnight"

All of your cards are simply stunning using black and white with a pop of color. I am loving your flowers on the card you used for this and the red gems. Thanks so much for sharing your amazing inspiration with us at 4 Crafty Chicks Black and White Challenge.

Ooooo, lovely pair of cards, Jen! Beautiful job on both. I'm so happy that you decided to CASE my card and play along at Happy Little Stampers this month. Black CS is tough to use and you did wonderful work. Your cards are original and so very pretty. Melissa

Funny how you say you struggle to use black cardstock, when both of these cards are stunning!!! I love the layout of your first card and the pale colours you used with the black and white, just gorgeous. And your embossing for the second card is perfection against the black background. I think you should force yourself to use black more often and so glad you joined us at Happy Little Stampers!!
