Last month the focus was one white, and this month we are going to turn our creativity towards black!  I have been drawn towards using black backgrounds for projects for a few months now and I find that it really allows the color combination to pop from the page.  Here is your chance to try black as a background yourself!  Pair it up with a bold geometric design or a brightly colored bouquet.  Heat embossing looks so elegant when used on a black background.  And don't forget how well white ink will show up as well.  Just pull out some black cardstock and have fun experimenting with a brand new look for a brand new year!

Here are some examples of projects I have created in the past using True Black or Smokey Shadow backgrounds that you might be able to use as inspiration!
