This black and white flower scrapbook paper walks the line between vintage and thoroughly contemporary. It has a bold, classic look that would work beautifully as a background for a scrapbook page or embellishment, or on a handmade card. I can just see this used with other elements that contain strong colors, such as red, teal or magenta.
I also used this same design as a base for a set of pastel vintage scrapbook papers, which are available free at my Vintage Holiday Crafts blog. You'll probably be surprised at how different they look because of the color changes (they come in pale sage, dusty pink, soft blue and warm brown) and the addition of vintage "weathering." The combination makes them look downright Victorian. I also created some coordinating vintage striped paper in the same colors and the same weathered look.
Whether you like bold or soft and vintage, I hope you enjoy these free scrapbook papers!
