Black and White Ink Card

Another card for you today. This one is a bit different because all I did was use black ink on it. I actually made it one way, then added more. Now I'm not sure which I prefer, so I'm going to show you both and maybe you can let me know what you think?

The photos below are a bit darker, but if I lighten it, some of the detail is lost. 

I think if I make this one again, I'll do it a bit differently. You can see what it is I'm trying to do, but I don't think I was completely successful. I'll ink up my pad before I try again.

I did a bit of masking to get this effect. In any case, this one was a fun card to make.

Have a good day! 



  1. Love the progression of your images from a 'dry' scene to a wet one to the one with reflections. Great stamping Carmen

  2. Difficult to choose but as a lover of clean lines.. I choose the first.
    I love the concept...very clever.


Thanks for the comments!
