It's Black & White

I made a winter wonderland.  This Thomas Kinkade stamp is an all time favorite, and I understand that another company has bought the stock of the Cornish Heritage Farms so hopefully I can get all the rest of them.  These stamp look stunning done just in black ink on white paper.  I really enjoyed planning and making this card.

I like to write a little about how I made this.  I used Ranger Archival Ink and LaBlanche Speciality Paper to stamp the Thomas Kinkade Stamp.  The Ink and Paper make this highly detailed stamp into a perfect image.  You can see ALL the detail without any bleeding of the ink.

I cut the sentiments with my Cricut Imagine using the Winter Frolic cartridge.  I used a Sakura Stardust Clear pen to make the black stand out like that.  Wow, it even shows up great in this picture.  I was rather surprised by that.

I made the flowers with the Tim Holtz (TH) Sizzix Die-Tattered Florals, and Tags & Tabs is also TH and the snowflakes are from a Sizzlet Die.  I embossed the black cardstock with the music embossing folder from Sizzix.
