Black and white Monday...
A strong Black and White card today using the centres of the Pacific Ocean collection. I simply love the way these tessellate together to make complex or simple patterns.
I simply used a variety of the hexagonal shapes to make the pattern in the black foundation card. I then mounted the other shapes within the Tahiti die set to layer through the black and white.
I just love the simple way the Black and white works although I know it's not everyones cup of tea!
I made up the starflowers using variegated black and white adding stick on crystals ( form Craft Consortium) to add some shine and shimmer.
For the foliage I used the Family Tree die cut in gloss black and gloss white snipping the tree down to make the foliage.
The sentiment is from my Rose elements clear stamp set which is one of the first sets I designed and use my favourite font the Draft Handwriting which has the lines on as if it has been drafted.
I thought he black and white would be a good antidote to the bright Christmas colours that are everywhere at the moment!
