Black, White & Silver

Made this card for a male friend whose birthday is Sunday. We first met many years ago in Japan, hence the theme, and have stayed good friends ever since. Had Envys challenge of using black, white & one other colour in mind when making it. It is an Inkadinkadoo stamp which I have used 3 times with black ink; first just heat set on white heavily textured card with silver flecks, secondly on slightly textured silver card which I embossed with clear powder and cut out the woman from and thirdly on another silver which was also embossed in silver and I cut out the cherry blossom from. Distressed the white card with black ink, layered the images up, mounted them on black card and then a white card blank, also distressed with black ink. It is reminiscent of B&W images that we saw and bought in Japan and I think I've managed a card suitable for a male from a feminine image. Hope he likes it.
