Craftmad August Swap - Black and White

Hi everyone, today I am sharing one of my Black and White cards I have done for the Craftmad August swap.  Initially, I thought this would be pretty easy but was surprised at how difficult it was to use just two colours.

This card I started with a blank black card base then a layer of white which I doodled around the edge with my fine tip black pen creating the chequered border.  I then inked up this lovely fern stamp from a Stampin Up set.  Added some ric-rac and black twine along the bottom of the card.  I then used these fantastic bird of my favourites.  I attached the stickers to white paper and cut around them and then attached to the card.  I finished the card by adding some Kindy Glitz to the fern leaves which seems to have given them a pinkish tinge although it is a white or clear glitter.

Must dash and walk the dog....catch up with everyone again tomorrow with my second black and white card.  Have a great day and thanks for taking the time to visit. :-)
