Black, White and Silver

This is my take on black and white + one, for which I chose silver.

For the image I used a Tim Holtz stamp. I heat embossed it using black embossing powder on white background.

The sentiment is from Dylusions, I heat embossed it with white embossing powder onto black paper.

I also used heat embossing for the die cut key, I added silver embossing powder before I cut it out with a Marianne Design die.

On the top left corner I added a feather and a key silver metal charm and a white ribbon bow. On the bottom I added a white feather and some gems.

I' used a, to me, brand new set of Spellbinders dies for the card base and the frame for the image on the front and for the sentiment on the inside. I added another die cut key on the inside, using white paper. The birthday sentiment is heat embossed in black.

Stunning...absolutely stunning!!!

I need to break out my embossing powders more often if I can create a card even a fraction as nice as this!

The white on black card is eyecatching and the key is just beautiful. Love the addidtion of the little charm and the feather is perfect.

Those dylusion word stamps are fab.
