Silver and Gold - Black and White .....

.... The Play Date Cafe challenge. Oh dear, this took me way out of my comfort zone, I normally don't use silver and gold very often only maybe some glitter as accents
Supplies:
textured square white card
papers - plain white and black paper, patterend paper (cannot remember where I got it from)
stamp - Elzybells, Stampington Company
ink - Artemio, Elzybells
blings - Artemio

I love the little town stamp. I used it before with patterend paper but it looks just as good on just white card. A lot of fuzzy cutting was involved to layer the houses to get some depth.
When stamping the sentiments, I realized that the ink would not cover the embossed areas on the paper which gave a lovely effect - not intentionally, though (lol).

Petra,
I am so glad that I found you through Karen's Brag Monday. I love this design, and thank you for showing it at an angle, so that I could see how you gave it the depth. It is so gorgeous, and this technique can be used for so many wonderful stamping projects.
Karen
