Black and white

Hello everybody! How are you doing? I'm enjoying my day off. :) It's lovely outside so I think I will go for a short walk after lunch - I need to go to the post office anyways.

A new challenge just started at Crafty ribbons and this forthnight we want to see your black and white creations. I have to admit this was a bit out of my comfort zone. While I do like black and white combination, I like a splash a colour with it too. So sticking to only those two colours was pretty hard for me. Luckily at least I had some black and white papers in my stash. I didn't want to make a black and white card, so I decided to make a box in those colours instead. And this is what I came up with.

See gorgeous laces I used on this project? It's from Crafty ribbons. One is Clermont cotton lace and the other one is not in the store yet. So consider this a sneak peek. ;) Flowers, bead string and bling came from my stash. The sentiment in an ornated frame is a gorgeous new stamp from Family forever stamp set that is available at Whimsy store. I covered the sentiment with glitter glue.

I made this butterfly with silicone mold and mod melt.

I can't wait to see your black and white creations - I hope you will come play with us! :)
Have a wonderful day! xx
