Black Theme

Well, today has been a strange one. My dads got a bad back and my mum has sciatica so I have been working like a house elf lol 
they have looked after me enough, so it's nice to be able to give them something back. At least I got time to craft this evening :-) 

Today's challenge in the 'Mad Crafters Giggles' Facebook group was
"Use a mask on or in your card"

I thought I would have a fun messy crafting session so I decided to use a metal work style mask and polly filler. I then sprayed it with black distress ink, silva mica powder and water then dried it with a heat gun.
The topper and sentiment are both from Kanban.

While I was on a dark theme I thought I would make a black and white card but do white on black for a change. 
The image is an indigoblu one, stamped and heat embossed in white. I did the same for the sentiment. 
Although you can see them in the photo, I have used little black gems on the image. 

I have to say, I am really pleased with how both of these cards have turned out. 

Hope you have all had great crafty days and I thank you for visiting my blog.

I love both your cards. The first is a perfect masculine themed card, and switching to white on black for a monochrome card is a great idea.
