Black and White and oh-so-right Stamped Card

Hello my friends! Welcome to FriYAY!

Today, I'm sharing a chic black & white number I created for the latest STAMPlorations challenge:






Here's how STAMPlorations challenges work:
> Use either the sketch OR the theme OR both
> Use any product/stamp/paper you like - STAMPlorations products NOT required

This particular challenge is open until the end of the month, so get crafting already!

For my card, I used both the theme and the sketch. 


Ok.... well I'm technically saying I used markers... event though I think it might be a "pen". 

I took the Foiled Again ARTplorations stencil and randomly outlined areas using a Faber Castell Pitt Artist...erm... marker? fiiiine pen. I filled in some of the outlined areas, and left others blank.




And then I stamped some flowers from my Buttercups and Butterflies set and layered on a bunch of other black and white stuffs. 

Why all the black and white, you ask? Well check out this fabby mood board from City Crafter Challenge:




That's why. 

Before I go, I have to show you guys my cool new 'do. I cut off ALL the inches and went with a daring, chic style. 

oooooo! Yeah, I kind of love it. What do you think?
