Black & White for JAI

Hello, how time flys when you are busy!
Today is my first blog for weeks and I can't tell you how nice it has been spending a day in my craft room.

I definitely needed some help to get my mojo flowing so I turned to one of my favorite challenge sites for inspiration, Just Add Ink. The challenge over there this week is simple, Black & White, and since it is my son's birthday on Sunday, I decided to make him a black and white birthday card.
I had no idea what I was going to do, but I did know I wanted to use the fab watermark stamp out of the French Foliage Stamp Set in the SU winter mini. Jacob is turning 19 so I decided to use the "directions of your dreams" stamp from Word Play, which I embossed in black onto Whisper White card stock and that became the focal point of the card.

A couple of layers and some spritzing and one grungy 19 year olds card, done!

What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by Dani xoxox
