Time Out #50 - Home Sweet Home Challenge

Hi everyone!  We have a new challenge going on for the next two weeks over on the Time Out blog.  This is our Home Sweet Home challenge where we provide a photo for your inspiration.
Here's the photo.  Love all the black and white and newsprint.  My inspiration comes from the newsprint and those two pillows in the background.  See the black one with the white skyline and the white one with the black skyline?  That's what I saw and translated into my card.
So I started with the newsprint.  I stamped two different stamps from PTI's set in black ink.  Then I die cut MFT's skyline border from black and white paper cut them down and mounted them on black and white paper.  Then I searched for the perfect sentiment and I think this worked.  I first stamped "the sky" in Versamark and embossed it in white.  Then I stamped the "reach for" in black and stamped that on the white piece.  This whole panel was mounted on a black mat.
You can see more from the design team and out guest for this challenge, Cornelia, on the Time Out blog.
Thanks for stopping by!

That BG is so beautiful and I love the black/white-white/black panels; it is so original! Shows how working with just two "colours" can be so beautiful! Enjoy the weekend!

So cool, Lisa ... the positive/negative effect of the black on white and white on black city scapes and sentiments is brilliant! Hugs, Anita :)

I even have this bedding, and I did not notice those skylines that you focused on. Love the reversal and the clever take on these skylines. And, yes, the sentiment is perfect.

Really great take on the inspiration photo! I just love how you transitioned the skyline and the greeting from black to white - fabulous! Very cool, graphic card! Jill
