Black and White - and a splash of red

Hello and Happy Monday! Today starts a new Challenge on "A Passion for Papertrey"! This time it`s all about "Black and White", but I couldn`t resist to add a splash of red:



Wondering about this background? Haha, me too! It was an accident - I stamped the background with Versamark, then used my antistatic bag to prepare the card for the heat embossing of the focal Damask Image - and the powder stuck on the background! But I liked this result and left it as it is. Like Bob Ross always said: "There are no mistakes, only happy little accidents" (loved his chuckle when he said this)! You`ll find the supplies for this card on "A Passion for Papertrey", as well as Kate`s and Aimes` wonderful samples for the challenge!

Thanks for visiting, friends!

Hugs,
Vanessa
