Black & White Congrats

Flourishes is celebrating it's 6th Birthday with two weeks of challenges and prizes. Yesterday's challenge was to create a card using black and white. I had originally wanted to make a birthday card but once all was said and done this card said wedding or anniversary card to me. I stamped my newly won stamp set 'Picking Wildflowers' onto Neena white cardstock colouring in the spaces with my Copic C1 and shading and colouring here and there with C1, C3, C5 and C7. This was a fast and simple card to make and I love the end result.

Stamps - Picking Wildflowers, Tag Lines (Flourishes)
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Copics - C1, C3, C5, C7
Paper - Neena Classic Crest Solar White CS
Accessories - black ribbon (Offray), Rhinestone brad (CTMH)

    I don't know if you can buy this stamp in the UK - I think you may be in the USA. If not I will have to opt for something similar. I shall certainly view your web site again and look out on Pinterest.
