It's just black and white

I was visiting my favourite blogs last night and saw this very striking black and white card by Cath Wilson

Well I didn't get the same effect - but I will do so another day - but it did inspire me to make a card just using black and white.



Once again using a stamp from the Rummage Bin range of Cornish Heritage Farms I had a play and came up with this.


I used some black gems to give it some texture and 'lift' they catch the light and looked pretty I thought

This is superb. I love the black gems they set it off just right. A really striking card

Very Classy! Another idea popular at the moment is to do black and white with a hint of one other colour. Pastel pink works well xxx

One of my favourite stamps, Lottie and no, I don't have it - yet, lol. But I love the way you made this card! You're a real natural, so please stop worrying and just enjoy it... Fabulous!
