Black and White



This is the first time I've joined the 4 X 4 Friday challenge. Their theme this week is black and white. I used an Ornare brass template to pierce the design on metallic white cardstock, stamped the baby face (Tin Can Mail) on white glossy cardstock with Coal Black Ancient Page Ink, glued it "off-centre" on a circle of black-grey cardstock for a shadow effect, and pop-dotted it onto the ornare background. Fun challenge! Thanks so much for visiting.
