Just For Fun - Black and White

I hardly ever think of stamping just black on white, don't know why not because it is an elegant combination, so thought I would join in on this week's Just For Fun challenge which is Black and White.

Its also good to try something different every once in a while as it means when you go searching for embellishments you find stuff you forgot you had - like the spotty ribbon I found right at the bottom of my ribbon box.


The lacy background is an Aspects of Design stamp by the Stampman which wasn't quite big enough so had to be stamped three times.  Didn't line it up properly and left a small white gap between impressions so I got out the fine liner pen and 'sewed' the lace together - can you see the joins?

Well if it's Friday afternoon it's shopping time, not craft unfortunately just the boring food shop variety, so I'm off to Asda.  See you soon.

Ooh Ann, forgot about this stamp which I love so much.
Great card you have made and what a brilliant idea using that AoD stamp for the background. You have stitched it?
Thank you so much for joining us at JFF this week. Hugs, Neet x
