Two More Black and White Cards

When I was doing my black and white card yesterday (for the CAS-ual Friday challenge) I started with this stamp before deciding to combine it with the FTL challenge. So, this morning (instead of treadmill!) I worked on finishing it up. (I will do treadmill after I get this post finished. :) )

The main image is a stamp from a Crafty Secrets set I recently purchased. I stamped it four times and cut them out with a square Nestability. I mounted them on Dimensionals and matted with a large black square. The sentiment is from My Sentiments Exactly. This card is a case of a card by Annie in my stamping group. Thanks, Annie! This is Annie's card.

The first time I stamped the image, it was a little bit too light. But, of course I couldn't throw it away! This morning I made it into a card. I matted it with a little bit lighter black cardstock which I cut with a scalloped Nestability and mounted on Dimensionals. I embossed the frame directly in the card front. I added a thin strip of black and stamped the image (from Papertrey Ink) below.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

Good call about finishing up with stamping instead of going on treadmill (I do that ALL the time--LOL!!)I love your 4 panels on the first card! And I like that you used the fainted image and turned it into a lovely (2nd) card!! The embossed panel is so pretty! Thanks so much for joining us at CAS-ual Fridays! Hope to see your beautiful work again!

LYNETTE, Love the black and white designs. And I think its NEAT that you take something that is not quite so your minds eye, and turn it into something that is Beautiful.
With Love Judi
