Scrapmatts - Black White and One

Hi Girls,
This month the theme for Scrapmatts is Black, White and One.  Love the striking contrasts of this colour combination, so much fun to work with!!
This LO was created for a Girl Grunge theme for Scrapbook Creations Magazine and published in Issue 94.  The colour combo is black white and teal, and I cheated just a little bit by using a Kraft background paper.  I used the Scrapmatts Clock Faces which I backed with some gorgeous BG pp then inked in silver and black.  I also used the tiny Scrapmatts Gears on my butterflies.

List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Clock Faces 01 CB 5053, Gears 05 CB1078, black and white c/s, MME, BG and Crate Paper pp's, book pages, corrugated cardboard, Craft Queen cobweb ribbon, recycled chain, zipper flower, feather, Glitz Design stamp, Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Crafters Workshop stencil, Tim Holtz flower die, stamp, embossing folder and distress ink, texture paste, paint, Kaisercraft bling, Daisy D's rubon, American Crafts glitter alphas.

I am trying to create a few more masculine LO's, as lately most of my work has been very feminine and I needed to change it up a bit.  This photo of Luke was taken whilst on holiday in New Zealand.  He's on he way up a massive hill, so that he can come screaming down at high speed on a Luge Ride.  He had a ball even though it was freezing cold.  I used the Hanging Frame, various Gears and Assorted Words chippies and had a bit of fun with a grungy mixed media background.

List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Hanging Frame 02 CB5059, Ass't Words 02 CB 1136, Gear Frames 04 CB5041, Gears 02 CB1073, Gears 05 CB1078, Bazzill Cardstock, BG, 7 Gypsies, Teresa Collins, Crate Paper and Simple Stories pp's, BG diecut stickers, Daisy D's rubon, Kaisercraft stamp, EK Success border punch, Tim Holtz game spinners, twine, Tim Holtz distress stain, Gesso, Versamagic ink.

Created two feminine shabby chic tags and highlighted the chippies in black ink to make them pop.
List of Materials:  Scrapmatts Butterflies 18 CB1028, Card Borders 03 CB1020, Thank You Words 05 CB1051, Micro Chips 14 MC1022, CI, Echo Park, Authentique, Teresa Collins, Prima, 7 Gypsies pp's, Craft Queen satin binding, Tim Holtz trim, Prima lace, resin flower, Kaisercraft pearls, ink.

Love Card
A pretty card using the new cupid chippies and the name plates which I coated with some Viva Inka Gold in a rose colour.  Love this medium as it has a gorgeous shimmery sheen and you just rub it on with your fingertip.
