Bloggers Challenge Week 15 Orange & Black

This weeks Bloggers Challenge was to use Orange and Black in creating a card or project. If you'd like to play along - leave a comment on this post with a link to your blog or gallery using this weeks challenge.

Instead of using Halloween sets for this weeks challenge, I picked a few other stamps that I thought worked rather well with the colors we needed to use. Of course I couldn't resist adding a hint of color to my cards.

Lisa! I just love both of your cards! Adding a little extra color doesn't overtake the b/o combo at all! Love the leaves and on that card, I especially love the way you highlighted the words with orange. Anita the guest blogger...Great card! Thanks for joining us for the week!

Great minds think alike, I added just a hint of color to mine as well. Great cards this week!

Ida said...

Wonderful cards Lisa. Since Fall is my 2nd favorite season of the year I have to pick the card with the leaves as my favorite this week. I really enjoyed how you did non-Halloween cards for this weeks challenge. Also like the Guest stampers card (great photo corners) too. Ida

Lori said...

All three are great! Picking images that would work well with the colors of the challenge was a good starting point. I love the look of the leaf card.

Stefanie said...

Great cards Lisa! Those leaves are very striking! What a great technique.
