I have been seeing beautiful cards colored using just black, white and gray and knew I wanted to try it. While I had the Accented Blooms set out I pulled out the combo packs of Black and Smoky Slate Stampin' Blends and the Color Lifter. I thought this set might be a good choice for this coloring idea since the images are pretty open and it isn't too fussy or big.
I am pretty happy with how this turned out and will definitely try this technique again. One of the hardest things is during the coloring process I was so tempted to add a splash of color like red or yellow but when it was all done I am glad I didn't.
The sentiment was stamped using Versamark ink on Whisper White cardstock and embossed using Black embossing powder. I also used the retired Black Baker's twine. I still miss the Black Baker's twine and sometimes I just have to use it. The Basic Gray cardstock was embossed using the Scripty 3D folder.
