Silhouette in Black and White...

Hello all you Cheery Lynn Fans.. welcome to Sunday I'm Tamara with your daily inspiration...
Today I'm going black and white as my theme.. 
Cheery Lynn Dies used 
Judy's Blooms (for extra leaves)

The flowers have been distressed using DI's in Black Soot.  I used an embossing tool to shape the leaves upwards. I like the effect of the stamens inside the flower and in the centre I have used a small velvet brad.  
I stamped the image using memories white ink and then embossed with Sweet Stamps white embossing powder.  I then used more black soot DI's over the image to give it a weathered look.

Here's a close up of one of the flowers I used a bit more black soot on the leaves..

Other Crafting goodies
