To contrast with the vivid papers and embellishments of my page, I cut a title and star flourish from black cardstock, using the Make A Splash and Let's Make Music cut files from The Cut Shoppe:
To tone down the stark black of the cardstock cuts, I spritzed them both with white mist. They still made quite a statement!
I love the contrast of black and white with the saturated teal, yellow and red of the patterned paper, enamel dots, tags, and acrylics. It's a wonderfully bold look, a look that works well for my colorful photo!
