Black and White

Hi there! We have a topping option for you this time at Seize the Birthday.  The option is to create a black and white birthday card.

Of course you don't have to use the topping option to play along but it MUST be a birthday card.

I don't remember where I saw this technique or who I should give credit to but I thought it worked really well with the topping this week. You stamp on the 3 layers and it just flows from one layer to the next so perfectly!

I have to tell you that I soooooo wanted to add just a bit of colour to the center of the!

Cardstock: SU
Stamps: Penny Black, SU
Ink: Versafine
Ribbon: unk
As you can see it takes very few supplies to create this card.
Hope you have a chance to play along with this challenge! Don't forget to check out the other creations by the DT right here.
