Licorice and White ac160





Licorice and white is the colour challenge for AnnaBelle Stamps this week. Here's my card using BBD # 2 and Love Birds with licorice Sprinkles and satin ribbon.



I saw a good technique on the NET, not sure now where.... but I kind of applied it to this next little sample.
I quite like the result, it's a bit different and I'm looking for something different. :)  
The image was stamped off to a scrap of card, then spritzed with water and stamped to the front of this slim card. The same image was then embossed using white ep just off the original image......Not sure you can see that in this photo.  Gives a bit of a watercolour look I think......what about you?


This card features ABS Whimsy Flowers.


Looking forward to seeing all your elegant black and white creations over the next couple of weeks.
See you soon............

Isn't it so nice to try something different, how wonderful Sue! I don't yet have this BBD set but am feeling the *need* lol. Thanks again for the inspiration!

Gorgous B&W cards. They are always so striking. I must say that I am partial to the second, floral card. Hope all is well.

Hope you and Walshie are doing well.
