Its all black and white...
Something simpler today again however more striking in Black and White ( with a bit of silver) This was one of the samples for my Hochanda shows last week using one of my fave combinations of dies and matching stamps the Tuscany and the venetian spirals stamp.
I stamped the image using perfect medium onto vellum and heat set it with detail silver embossing powder. I cut the tuscany die in white using the second die in the set to make this into a frame. I then inset the vellum to this and added a shadow mat in black by cutting just the outline die in the set.
Net I stamped the camellia shaded stamps to die for again in perfect medium and silver detail embossing powder onto vellum. I cut these out with the matching die set, shaped them and added 2 of each size together with a black stick on pearl in the centre.
I added these around the bottom right with a double bow of black satin thin ribbon. I also used a scary of three smaller flowers after the sentiment stamped on the white layer of the card. A layer of black and a hand cut card blank and finished!
