It's All Black and White

Here is my sample for this weeks Stampin' Royalty Picture Inspiration Challenge! 

Ok, black, white and some pink and a little green! haha! This was pretty simple to put together once i decided how i wanted it. The only thing i think requires explanation is the flower...

I punched out 2 regular and 1 small-ish scalloped circles, sprayed them with water, crumpled them then un-crumpled them, layered them, poked a hole in the middle using my paper piercer, used a brad to hold them together, then stuck a large rhinestone over the brad. i poked another hole in the main panel before adhering it to the cardbase. i have found it difficult to glue paper that had been wet because the fibers keep it from sticking well. so it is best to use a brad to anchor it to the card somehow :o)

Supplies:

Ink - Black Staz-On
Stamps - Beautiful Birthday, Flowering Flourishes
Cardstock - Whisper White, Basic Black, Melon Mambo
Accessories -  Rhinestones, Little Leaves Die, Neutrals Patterned Paper, Scallop Circle Punches, Large Rhinestone, Beautiful Wings Embosslit,

Beautiful details, Georgeann. All those lovely layers. I'm a sucker for the flourishes! And thanks for the tip about spraying the cardstock. I'm sure it makes the task much easier! I'll use that tip next time.
