A Study In Black and White

Jenny Gropp did it again! (Jenny's Blog) The detail on this card is just wonderful. I especially love the stitch work she did around the medallion. Black and white cards are just so timeless. This card needed to be shared.

Now for Jenny's words:
I like this quote! This was a fun little card. I used a simple outline stamp of a
Delicate Butterfly image, stamping it twice on the ivory. A third time, I stamped it over a printed butterfly image on the DP (the same Butterfly DP used in the background) to get the detailing on the butterfly wings. I used Perga Glue which is a fancy type of silicone glue for crafts --dries clear and it is not ooeey gooey gross like the cheap stuff (ummm... yes, I know that from a messy experience). Anyway, I popped some perga glue in between the layers of my wings and they stand right up, you can mail it and the wings are going to keep the lift and not flatten out. You can barely see a hint of the clear silicone in between in my pic to the right. I used some jute string to embellish my Spellbinder's Scalloped Oval, by winding it around and in between each little scallop. I added a teeny teeny bit of Spica gold to the butterfly wings for a little sparkle, looks better in person than in the pic! A few little buttons along the bottom to finish it up. I love, love, love ivory and black together. Card size is an A2.
