Lotstodo Week 16 Challenge - Black & White


This weeks theme on lotstodo is black and white. I'm back to the old faithful corrigated cardboard again!!! I ripped bits off again to create texture. I covered the whole piece with snowcap acrylic dabber paint. I stamped some background stamps with black stazon. Added a piece of wire mesh to the top right hand corner and purposely stuck it above the top. Threaded a thin piece of silky black ribbon through the white lace and attached to the left hand side and used black and white rickrack on the right hand side. Tied black hemp through the white buttons and white string through the black buttons and attached. I printed the main image in black and white. The wings are grungeboard painted with black acrylic dabber paint. I then used my embossing pen to create the marks around the edges and insides of the wings. Using white opaque embossing powder, I heat embossed them. I used a piece of white lace on her dress and added the black gem stones. I added a black metal brad with the word love and a black photo anchor and a white brad to the bottom right

AND I've got it in my hot little hands it's SO gorgeous - this picture doesn't do it justice at all. The depth created by using the corrugated card and the layering really give it impact - a beautiful piece. THANK YOU SAM!
