JustRite Friday Challenge #49 & The Shabby Tea Room #51

Another great technique challenge over at the JustRite Challenge!  This time we were supposed to use the "direct to rubber" technique.  Instructions can be found on their blog post.  I decided to mix the colors from The Shabby Tea Room challenge for my design.  I used a little more black than the actual inspiration photo but I just couldn't do so much white today??
Sometimes I know what I want to make and sometimes I don't. This seemed to fall in the latter category?? I just received this new stamp, JustRite Friendship Blooms Cling set, and thought it would look great with the two-tone look I wanted to achieve.  Here is what I came up with for these challenges:
I applied Momento Lady Bug Red first and then used a random black gel pen for the corners and sentiment.  (This technique is not very forgiving and I did it a couple times before I was happy with the result but still an interesting thing to try if you haven't done it before.)  I cut with Spellbinders Labels One and also again with a bigger die in black for a frame.  I popped it on a piece of white cardstock that I ran through my Cuttlebug and embossed with QuicKutz Lines and Dots. (It's hard to see in the photo??)
The flowers are Prima and I accented them with the same red ink as the stamp.  The buttons are standard black buttons and I added dew drops to the center for a more formal look.  The satin red ribbon and the rhinestone flourish were scraps that I always have lying around.

Oh, black/white/red is always such a lovely combination and this is no exception! I really like your BG paper with your stamps, how you dressed up those black buttons and added the color to the roses -- very pretty!!!
