Style is Eternal

A couple of really terrific ladies I know are opening up a women’s accessories shop in an empty storefront my husband and I own on Orchard Street in Hamburg NJ.  I thought the enterprise was worthy of a card done in the same colors as the store will be . . .

We’re putting in a black and white checkerboard tile floor and the color scheme will also be black and white with hot pink accents throughout.  It’s gonna be a knockout – if you’re in the area come January, please do stop on by!

Meanwhile, the card features a checkerboard done with a stencil and embossing paste.  The image of the woman was done with the Kissing Technique:  the solid figure was inked first and then an un-inked textured background stamp was pressed into the rubber which was then stamped on the cardstock.  It’s easy to do and very effective for adding some textural interest.
