Black is beautiful

Hellooo friends, welcome back!! Today I am sharing a black beauty :). I started by stamping the lovely hibiscus stamp from Mudra on black paper and embossed using silver embossing powder. This looks lovely and shimmers in light. I had plans to use these for some other card but on the spur of moment I decided to give a try with black on black. I was not so confident but nevertheless went ahead.

I fuzzy cut the flowers and leaves and adhered using foam tape on black cardstock. Added a strip of patterned paper and few rhinestones to add some element.

So this is how it looks.

 A closer look. Believe me it looks best when it shimmers

Supplies used:
Mudra Stamp for flower
Simon Says Stamp sentiment
WOW silver embossing powder
Papericious PP
