... This year one of my goals is to develop my stamping skills. I came across this challenge the other day and though I'd join in- just for fun!
The challenge was to use only black and white, and to make something for a man. Well, I don't know how manly my card is, but it's definitely black and white! At first I used white on black by embossing with white embossing powder, but I didn't like it-my white embossing powder is kind of creamy and not pure white, and it just didn't look right. So instead I just simply stamped with black ink onto white cardstock. No fancy techniques, but I'm happy with the card, perfect as a 'Greetings from Scotland' card. I don't know the make of the thistle stamp, but the check one came from Scrapagogo as part of a kit. I love it's versatility!
Anyway, here's the card:
