Black and White...

Hi Ya!  Didn't think I would be posting anything for a few days, but then I saw that the challenge over at the Stampin' Sisters In Christ is a challenge to make a black and white or black and cream project.  I went with black and white.  Grace's devotional this week is absolutely fantastic and a definite must read.  I love how she contrasted the negative thoughts that we all have from time to time with the positive, affirming word of God! 



For my card I used another newly acquired Layers of Color stamp:  Silk Moth.   I stamped the image on white cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink, applied black Filigree embossing powder and then heat set it.   The image was then trimmed out and popped up on a piece of white cardstock that I ran through my Big Shot in a Sizzix embossing folder.  To provide a bit more finish I added some black rhinestones to the image, as well as the embossed piece.   I didn't put a sentiment on the card as I just wanted to let the image shine.

Thanks for taking a peek....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  Gina K. black; PTI white; Stamps:  Layers of Color Silk Moth; Ink: VersaMark; Embossing Powder:  Filigree Black; Gems:  Black rhinestones
