DT Project 2 for Creative Expressions - Love in Black and White

Good Morning

Following on from Saturday's make for Creative Expressions using the Hearts Entwined Stamp Set.   Today's make is quite different in mood, whilst the first make was colourful and funky this is much more subdued in traditional  black and white.  It is often difficult to keep to a colour scheme but this one came together quite well.

I pierced the edges of a piece of 8x8 white cardstock and then took a piece of black card and stamped the small hearts randomly with Clear Perfect Medium and white embossing powder.  I embossed the piece using  Couture Creations Tied Together embossing folder.  I used some Ice Stickles: Diamond on the hearts to give them a bit of sparkle and used some pearls to embellish the embossing.  I lightly rubbed the embossing with white pastel to make it pop.

I added a strip of scored white card stock to the bottom of the card and some white Sheer Wrinkled Edge Ribbon.  I made a few flowers using black and white handmade paper from my stash and a black felt rolled rose.  I made the 'leaves' from a piece of cardstock stamped with the heart image.

The two large hearts were stamped with Black Archival and Cosmic shimmer Viola black.  The hearts were cut out and embellished with pearls.  The sentiment was stamped from the set using black archival.

 The die is from Spellbinders and I used the three largest from Spellbinders Adorning Squares.

 Have a great day.

A very pretty card with so many layers and textures and you just can't beat a bit of Black & White.
