It's all in Black and White...
I know quite a few of my blog family aren't too keen on simple Black and White however when it comes to Drama I don't think you can beat the original monochrome look! I really think that the stark colours on this show all the detail on some of the other flowers that are included with the Orange blossom flower dies as well as the matching stamps to die for!
I stared this card by cutting three of the back panels using the centre lattice and matching outline form the Lattice Window triplet die in coconut white. I then cut three of the black backing panels using just the outline die and stuck these together to give an almost leaded window look. To add depth I put Midnight PVA glue on each of the junctions and left these to dry for a couple of hours.
I shaped the flowers using ball tool and my foam stamping mat. Next I cut the centres, that also come in the die set, in black card, shaped them and added these to the centres of the flowers with a 5mm stick on pearl in white in the very centre.
I finished the card with frame made using sets A & B for the pierced rectangles and added a couple of layers of Black and white to frame the card.
