Black and White

Time for another IO challenge, and this time the theme is "black and white." I love the look of black and white cards, but I often forget about making them.

I will have to come back later to give you the names of the stamps since I can't seem to get on the IO website right now to check. If I would just write down my stamp info this wouldn't be a problem, but....

I used the same Cover a Card stamp in black in the background as I did in grey for the foreground. I liked the continuity of using the same pattern for both. To embellish the card, I used clear gems from Hero Arts.

Need some black and white inspiration? Check out what Daniela, Dina, Jeanne, Julie, and Kathy, created.

Want to play along? You can find all of the information here, and you could even win a $25 Impression Obsession gift certificate!

Stunning card, Laura! I just love that Impression Obsession background stamp (which I too have forgotten the name of, BTW).
