Black and White and Red All Over?

Nope. Not a newspaper!

Aloha ♥ !!!

I love that joke, even if it's still corny. Paper Smooches April Challenge is to create something that is Black and White with a POP of color. Zebras! With a red heart!

This card is fairly simple, aside from continuing to try and produce a "mirror image" using a piece of acetate. After stamping with black ink onto acetate, I have to be very careful not to shake too much in order to lay the acetate onto the card next to the image, then gently press it into the card. The trick to evening out both images to look similar is to use a black marker all over both. It also smooths out any jagged edges because I am a shaker :)

Then use a marker to sketch out some grass/ground. To finish I used 3D Crystal Lacquer to round up and sparkle the stripey heart & eye balls ♥
