Biking Buddies


The April Challenge at The Two Crafty Scrappers is to use Black on your layout.   I use black a lot as mats for my pictures, (although all my Easter layouts yesterday there wasn't a spot of black) so it was fun to go back to this challenge.    I had this single sheet of bike paper and I just cut an inch of the side and the top and then had planned to put it on a piece of black card stock but for the first time in ages, I was totally out of black, so I used a deep forest green.   Then I matted my two pictures in black (I have tons of 8.5x11) sheets and then with my left overs from one sheet I use part of it for my title strip and just used white thickers on it and did a faux stitch in white.   Then I also matted my biking stickers and added them to the layout.  You can check out the challenge    HERE.
