Topography in Black and White

I pulled out my Topography set over the weekend.  I wanted to create a really clean and simple, one layer card, so before I stamped the background, I masked off the center using a post-it note that was cut down to 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".

Originally I was going to just color in a few of the areas in black, but I decided I wanted a mid-tone, so I added a dark gray, and then I decided I wanted a lighter gray too, and I went with it.

This is fun to color because you don't have to worry about shading, and for the most part the areas are pretty big and easy to color.  The trickiest part was creating a straight line around the center masked area, but again, because the areas aren't too far apart, it was relatively easy to do.

To make the sentiment pop a little bit more, it's stamped in Versafine and then clear embossed.

This really is a lot of fun to color in a relatively short amount of time, and you could definitely mass produce these.

Oh one more thing!  There's a new release at Ellen Hutson.

Some great goodies there....I'm thinking that these might just jump into my cart before the day is over.....

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
