Black and White Challenge

Happy 2010! It's the first day of 2010 and the DT at Humble Pie wanted to start the new year off in grand style with a challenge calling for the use of Black and White plus one other accent colour. It's challenging to work with only 2 colours and I had to come out of my crafting shell for this one. Check out the rest of the wonderful DT creations here and join in the fun.

These Daisy Bucket DPs ~ Little Black Dress + Out on the Town ~ are just delish and even the names are classy. I decided not to colour the Chrysanthemum stamp image, which can be purchased exclusively at the Town Scrapper. I wanted to try something new so I embossed the image with Clear Crystal embossing powder for added bling. Not sure you can see it in the photo but its cool IRL.
