Black and White

I don’t know about you but I love the elegance of black and white cards – but I never think to make them unless it appears as a challenge theme which is exactly where the inspiration for this one came from - SD532610
The secret Crafter challenged us to use just black and white so I’ve embossed this Fiskars stamp in white EP on black card and added some glue dots covered in glitter. This finishing touch was inspired by the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays and I have to say I’d never thought of using my glue dots in this way before and love how they look – here’s a close up !  I’m also going to enter this at Crafters Companion where the theme is Glitter and Glitz and at Fashionable Stamping Challenges - this is a new challenge site set up by some of the girls who were on the Lets Ink it up team (where I had a brief adventure) which sadly had to close when Suzanne became unwell. Their first theme is anything goes and I wish them every success in their new challenge.   
Hope you’re having a good week – thanks for stopping by…Esther xx
