Black and White

The challenge over at Annabelle Stamps Blog this fortnight is to use the colours Licorice and White (AC160). I don't use black very much on my cards (nor white really) so thought this would be a good one to have a go at.

A cousin of mine has recently got engaged so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to make them an engagement card.

This is the colour combo:

Here is my card:

I put glossy accents all over the "Congratulations":

Added AnnaBelle Stamps sprinkles - icicle (3 mm) to my "elegant flourish" (and you can kind of see the vanilla shimmer spray on the white card):

Stamped using white pigment ink:

And stamped a small magnolia on white card for the inside of the card:

Copics: 110 (special black) - used just to touch up around the white stamping that I accidentally smudged before I could heat set it (and couldn't be bothered stamping another one!)
Stamps: Flourishes "Magnolias" and Stamp-it siset014 "Congratulations"
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black and ColorIt - Snow White
Cardstock: Quill XL Multiboard - black and white
Dies: Sizzix Tim Holtz Alterations - Elegant Flourishes, Spellbinder Nestabilities - A2 Fancy Weave, Spellbinder Nestabilities 5x7 A and B set
Other: Fiskars rotary trimmer, Vanilla Shimmer spray (on elegant flourish and white die cut behind "Congratulations" - hard to see in photos), Inkssentials Glossy Accents, AnnaBelle Stamps Sprinkles - Icicle (3 mm), Creativ Ribbon, double sided tape, X-Press it Glue marker, Helmar acid free glue, Sizzix Big Shot and heat gun (to set the white pigment ink).


  1. Great photography (I struggle to photograph black especially), I can really see the shimmer and those sprinkles are perfect on the flourish.
