To put it in black and white

Is it just me or is it getting a little warmer?   Popped over to the shop this morning without a coat on and played in the overgrown green area at the back of the house.   It was really quite pleasant.   It's clock change weekend as well thats always a sign of spring/summer, for those of you who work it means that next week you will be leaving work while it is still light (assuming you work day time hours that is).

Really should be working on some jewellery but since getting back into paper crafting again I sometimes get more of a pull from that direction.   Today is one of those days perhaps because I still have a couple of stamps out.

Went looking on Challenges for days to see if any themes inspired me, and there was.  A black and white challenge with Allsorts.   This is irresistible.   Stamped the image in Black Archival ink onto very smooth white card stock then touched it in places with silver alchemy wax.    6 inches x 4 inches piece of black card stock cut down and squirted just once with white spray.   Two pieces of card attached to each other.  A strip of white and black tissue tape along the bottom.   Then for a touch if bling the waste from a hole punch.
