(Don't think I haven't noticed that my follower's on Blogger are up to 99 - might just have to give away something to Ms/Mr 100!)
This is the card I saw:
She uses PTI'sThrough the Trees set using Black Memento ink
This is mine:
Here I used Momento ink for the trees - From SU's eternal Lovely as a Tree - but I stamped off the ink first so it was not as bright! I also used post-it notes to screen off my background and I kept them in place when I stamped so the trees disappear on the edge rather than flowing over. I used Tim Holtz Distress inks to make my background, with a touch of blue. My bird is actually a die cut (Memory Box) and the ribbon is SU ribbon. The card is SU card - Whisper White and Black - and the card blank is a commercial one from Regal Craft.
I will now confess that this is the second attempt!
Here is the image from the first, cut and replaced onto other card - it hit the bin at first but I rescued it!
Sharper and darker image - I smudged the first background, even though I had masked it and then made it worse trying to fix it - so the scissors and cutter came into being......
Similar idea but a layered card rather than CAS. My background 'paper' is a Kaiser packing sheet - too pretty to throw away!
el cheapo plastic 'bling' buckle purchased in a chuck out bin somewhere and laying in the stash! Ribbon also from stash.

Same card used as before
So, there are the two
Which one do you like best?
I will enter these in the following challenges:
Crafting When we Can: Use leftovers - yep, my second card does that! Nothing new used here!
Opus Gleui: Black and White plus a pop of colour - the CAS card
abc Challenge: M is for monochromatic......both cards or either
