Black and white

Hi everyone, I'm back again with my entry for Tuesday Alchemy's Black and white challenge.

 The backing paper is by Dovecraft - 6x6 Designer paper pack - Charcoal prints. I've distressed the edges with a Tim Holtz tool. I've cut a spellbinders Labels 5 in black card which I've then hand stitched in white and mounted with foam pads. I've added some black lace behind the panel. The butterfly is cut out in pearly white paper using a Marianne creatable die and my faithful Bigshot machine. I've added a large black bow, tied with a bowmaker, and some white card candi.
 I've had these papers for years so it's good to be using them at last. I've also been wanting to try stitching for ages so it's good to try that. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you've enjoyed your stay. If it's your first visit please have a look around my blog. I haven't been doing this long so any feedback is always gratefully appreciated. I hope I'll see you again soon and if you leave me a message I'll be able to visit you back.

Happy crafting (well it IS crafting weather!)
