Black and White and Aqua

Julie Ebersole posted about the color trend of pairing black and white with a pop of one color. So, I made this card, which uses a soft aqua ink -- Mountain Mist from Altenew -- for the stripes, plus black and white.

The flower (Bloom With Hope) and sentiment (Bows For You) are from The Stamp Market. Partially inked a striped background called Brushstrokes from Stampin Up.

Showed this to my husband, who actually said, "Well, the design structure is fine, but the colors are meh."  What does he know?  HA!!

MOOD WHEN DONE = No complaints here!


  1. I, for one, think this is magnificent! Ask him if he likes the color of 'raspberries' ... then give him a big juicy one! xx

    1. You are too funny, Michele! I second your comment: Joan, you've designed a gorgeous card! And *raspberry* would be pretty awesome too *grin*

  2. i also think it's fantastic - have always loved a pop of color with black!

  3. I love aqua (all shades from light to dark) and black together! Dynamite card, Joan.

  4. I think the colors are fantastic! I love a soft aqua, and that big, bold flower is WOW! He's completely right about the design structure, though. Super card, Joan!
