Black and White Floral

Black and white cards can be interesting to make. I used a digital paper as my background that I had downloaded from Jak Heath Designs from a special fund raiser. More of  her lovely papers are here. I used a sketch from Card Positioning Systems which happens to be sponsored  by Gina K Designs this week.
I  stamped the image from GKD "Buds & Vases" by Melanie  on GKD White CS with Memento Tuxedo Black and added some shading with Copics C1 and C3. Cut this with Nesties Rectangle die and placed on GKD Black CS cut with large label die. Love how the image looks on the floral paper with a black card base.  Embossed the mat with CB EF Victoria but hard to see in photo. Finished with a sentiment on circle, ribbon, and Hero Arts black pearls.

STV: GKDMAY11GS challenge to use black and white.
