Lexi’s Creations 90 Black/White and One other colour

At Lexi’s Creations today we want to see your creations using only black and white and one other colour. You can make whatever you want, scrapbook LO, card, mixed media project, tag, etc. etc. Just remember that it must be mainly black and white and that the other colour may not be the main colour of your project.

We are sponsored by Fairy Dust Crafts with the winner getting a choice of 5 digis from the store.

Lexi 90 Black White

My card has been made for a friend who is a Beef Farmer’s Wife, so immediately I saw this Mo Manning image, Moo, I knew it was for her! I have coloured Daisy, my name for her, in promarkers. The background paper I created myself as I couldn’t find anything I liked the look of online that resembled cowhide! I just had a few basic splat type shapes and I resized them, re-orientated them and then just placed them in what I hoped was a random pattern. After all cows aren’t uniform.

The grass, and branch were cut from some paper a friend gave me which is duo toned green, and the die for the grass is a Joycrafts Vintage Flourishes Die and the branch is Memory Box die. The little green gems were sent to me by a kind friend and the flowers are from my stash.

I really wish I could afford a light box for my photography as I feel my cards would benefit from proper lighting! Maybe one day, lol
