CFC #36

Two weeks in a row :D Happy Days. 

This weeks theme is black and white. At first I was in a bit of shock.. then I embraced it! I adored doing this card.. not to self do more black and white cards:  

I started off with this "magic" paper.. I can't for the life of me remember what it's called. You stamp with versamark on it, let dry then stamp a colored image over it. The versamark is supposed to resist the image. Nancy my friend and teacher showed us the magic of this paper in one of our classes. I stamped the top left with versamark fine black ink and it gave that beautiful image but it didn't work. So I switched to Memento black ink for the bottom right flower.. which is why it's a bit more gray. It's better however you can't really see it. I'll have to play around with this stuff a little more er a lot more. lol

Here's most of what I used:

I'd like to send birthday wishes to my amazing Mother. She's 70 today. :D Happy Birthday Mom your the best!
