This is my desk this week,starting with the completed card I was working on.I’m back with my favourite colour theme- Black, lol.

The base card is white pearl cut to 15cm square, scored & folded then sprayed with black webbing.I wanted to do a monochrome piece, and went for the trickier option of white stamping on black!

I tried a few images using different inks & embossing powders, and these are the results.
The greyish looking face section in the top left is White Staz-on & White pearl embossing powder. The music score, script and the tickets are all White Staz-on, no embossing, apart from the bottom left one which has a little embossing powder on it. The other three face sections are Moonlight White Brilliance ink, and White Detail embossing powder, which was much more successful.

However, the combo I finally went with was good old
Versamark and White Detail powder.
 I got a much more solid white print with this. These are leftover pieces from the various images I stamped, and as you can see from these and the card,  I cut them a bit randomly to give some movement to the compilation.

These are some of the stamps I used for
the images.I can see some Paper Artsy,
and some from Stamp Francisco.
I punched out some images,and cut out others to the width of one of my Clear rulers (which happens to be 3 1/2 cm, or 1 3/8in. ),which is the same as one of my Woodware punches, so it was easier to vary the orientation.You can see the punch in the bottom left of this picture.

I chose 9 of the images which seemed to work well together, and matted them onto white card with a gap between them then matted this onto black card, both trimmed to leave the same border. I gave the base a couple of blasts with black webbing, then tied back and white organza ribbon in a knot around the left side when it was dry.
The rest of my desk looks like this:


There are some black on white images cut to the same size, so I can do an opposite version, and the flower panel is a stamp called Mixed 3 Square, F1276, from Impression Obsession.

 I came across these while looking for stamped images I could cut down. I stamped them ages ago, and never got round to using them.

So out came the Promarkers, and this is the result for one square. I have separated them into individual tiles and also covered them with Anitas  3D Clear Gloss Finish, which is the same as Glossy Accents, as when I had finished the colouring, I was reminded of Victorian tiles. Thats my desk for this week, so off to the Lady Julias domain to view this weeks offerings, and a Happy WOYWW to everyone.

  3. Wow, you have a very busy desk Sharon!

    Donโ€™t think you can ever go wrong with Black and White and I especially love the flowers.

    Happy Crafting!

  4. Love that black and white card, Shaz, simple and stylish. Now you have done the work to decide how to get a good effect, I shall have to have a go, and get some detail white powder. Those flowers are rather good too, and I look forward to seeing how you use those.

  5. I always go for Versamark & white detail powder as they work so well everytime. I find the anti-static bag is a must too.

    Love your white & black card and I've now seen the black & white one too which is just as cool, xx

  6. Fabulous desk and cards and stamps and stuff. And thank you so much for sharing what you are working on, so inspiring.
    Thank you for the inspiration boost and happy WOYWW.

  7. G'day Shaz. Happy to visit again, and your desk holds lots of interest for me considering my recent fling with inchies. I like black & white and reversal images too. Great work.
    I always gives me a thrill to see those handsome faces at the top of your blog. They are very beautiful, intelligent faces.

  8. Beautiful card – I really like it. I also found out that I always come back to Versamark and white embossing powder if I want white stamping on black paper. Yours looks classic!

  9. I haven't done white on black stamping for ages..(never on my blog…so that but be at least two years) when I get home that's the first thing I'm going to do, (open the door first…take off my coat…loo….cup of tea….remake the bed…open the mail….and then into the craft room…!) your card looks fabulous!
    Happy WOYWW

  10. Hello Shaz, a very interesting desk this week – love your black/white cards – I've looked at all your most recent posts too. Liked seeing all your test pieces – I've only tried stamping white ink on black card once and it was not successful but have, like you found VersaMark and white embossing powder works better. I've never heard of black webbing before – what is it exactly, I wonder. Have a great weekend. Elizabeth x #108

  11. Love your black and white cards and your flower tiles – the only reason I am organised with my Christmas cards is I do a couple of challenges each month that is to make them lol
