JFF - Black and White

This is my entry for this weeks Just for Fun
which is Black and White.

I bought these fab stamps from Cutting Edge Crafts
and Ive been dying to try them.

I started by stamping this beautiful gate onto some acetate
my only complaint about this is that you only get one side
of the gate in the stamp set, you do however get the fence panels so you can
extend the fence , but i think it would have been better to have the opposite
gate too.
Next I stamped some roses, a quote and a tattoo stlye
heart and scroll onto some white card.

I used some silicone to attach the acetate to the white card 
Added it to a black mount , added some white corners
and a Happy Birthday topper.
Im pleased with the finished result .
I think it has a bit of a Gothic feel to it, Im sure these stamps will be well used

Thanks for stopping by my blog , I hope you have a lovely weekend,
its back to work for me tomorrow after 3 weeks off...........sigh.......

Hi Jaqi. Stunning! Really love it. I probably don't know what I am talking about but is there a way that you could stamp onto the reverse of the acetate so that you get a pair of gates? Or a stamping block to stamp the reverse image? They are fab stamps. Have a great weekend.

What a gorgeous card it really is stunning. If I want a mirror image of a stamp I just stamp straight onto my nonstick crafting mat and press the card or whatever I am stamping onto directly on to the image on the mat. I think that would work for your other gate. Alli

Thanks everyone, I can see im gonna have to play about with it, ive tried a few times before but not had much luck and ive given up, maybe this time i will conquer it !

Am with you on the fact that they could have put an opposite side in the set but hey ho you have done this so wonderfully that it would never have occurred to me.
A very stunning card and I bet irl it looks even more stunning.
Thank you so much for joining us at JFF this week. Hugs, Neet x
