I’ve always love a red and black color combination. It’s such a bold ‘look at me’ color combination. I’m also in love with the Houndstooth Plaid Ribbon that is available in both red and black and that ribbon was perfect for my bow for this project.

For the traditional yellow and brown flower, I inked the edges of the petals. For the other two, I used two colors of cardstock along with white and on the white petals I inked a script background stamp using matching ink colors and created some texture that way. I also inked the edges of the petals.
I will be demonstrating how to make the traditionally colored Black Eyed Susan in my tutorial below.

The card below was created using the center piece only of the Black Eyed Susan. I think it looks a little like the purple clover weeds you see growing in fields in the summer. Always think outside the box with your dies so you can get even more use out of them!
