It's Wednesday, and you know what that means. Time to make a one layer card! Susan's challenge was to make a black and white card with just a spot of color. Having little color, with lots of black and white tends to make whatever is colored pop. That can make for a striking card.
Tho photo doesn't show it, but the spider is embossed to give it a little texture.
And now for my stamping first. See those brackets around the sentiment? That is something I have never used before. I have never really understood the need for all the brackets I see, especially in scrapbooking, because I am more of a literal person. Grammatically, you don't need brackets, so therefore it doesn't make sense to me to use them. Unless of course, it is for a design element. I finally figured that out today! The sentiment was just floating out in the middle of nowhere until I added the brackets. Now it seems grounded and is very much a part of the whole picture.
I like that.
And I need to loosen up!
