Going black and white

hey there bloggers,
well hope you are having a happy day, it is sooooo windy here!!!
Anyway, After such a crafty and inky weekend I have lots to blog, so here is another one.
This is my entry for monochrome at thestampmanchallenge blog @ http://thestampmanchallenges.blogspot.com/

I have been waiting to play with these new stamps steampunk Christmas from chocolate baroque @ http://www.chocolatebaroque.com/ and thought the black and white would show them off well. I stamped the flowers twice and embossed using detail embossing powder from crafty notions, @ http://craftynotions.com/which is such a gorgeous glossy embossing powder and still hangs on to the beautiful detail of the stamps.I layered the flowers and curled the petals, using my fingers.

The flourishes are Tim Holtz elegant flourishes cut in black and white, the text is Tims and the distress ink is black soot.

Thanks for stopping by,
Have a happy crafty day, enjoy some inkiness!!!
