Creative Card Crew Challenge (6)

The challenge this week is 'Monochrome Madness'. I can't remember the name of the technique I used with this image but perhaps someone will recognise it and let me know. I stamped the image three times onto white card with versamark and heat embossed it. I then inked it all over with a black inkpad before placing plain paper on top and heating it with an iron until all the embossing came off, thus leaving the white image. I then simply layered it up with plain card and inked, embossed card. I also added a white & silver ribbon and a white butterfly brad which I heat embossed with holographic embossing powder. To finish off I stamped a design along the edges and a sentiment.

Your card is gorgeous Christine, love the image you used, and the stamping you've done down the sides really sets it off so well.
