It's in black and White!

I love my new 'Winter Birds' set and went with a black and white theme, as it seemed to suit the image.
(I'm going to do one with dark blue next time, as I reckon that will look nice too).
The only pattern is the Martha Stewart Doily lace punched edge.
I sponged grey ink around the Nestability inner oval and embossed the image with sparkling black embossing powder.
It doesn't show up well on here, but it's really sparkly in the flesh.

Thanks for stopping by. Viv xx

Now this is a beautiful card! I think I am going to have to do a little scraplifting from you. I don't have these stamps, but I am definitely going to find a way to make a non traditional card using black and white! Such a great idea!
Way to go!
