OLW 19 Black & White w/ a spot of color

Simplicity's challenge yesterday was a hard one!  The challenge is to make a one layer card in black and white, adding just a hint of color to make it pop.  I really wish I had more time this week to dig into my stamps a bit to see what I could come up with, but the rest of this week and most of next is completely booked.  So, I chose my animal and dog stamp drawers and came up with these two cards.

First up is a really fun cat stamp by Rubber Soul.  The complementary sentiment is from Inky Antics.


This second card uses a lab stamp from Cornish Heritage Farms and the sentiment is by Cloud 9.  I stamped this image in sepia on cream cardstock the first time I used it a while back and colored the hat a denim-y color...turned out really nice....I think I like that one better than this one.   But, this one's not bad.


Thanks for peeking!

I'm not usually a "cat" person, but that first card is absolutely adorable!! I love the second card too. You're very industrious too...I barely got one card finished!
