Black and White
The program for this swapped card was that it use only black and white. I found this stamp from Paperbag Studios in one of my drawers, and it was perfect.
I used ultra fine detail black embossing powder to emboss the image, then at the last second, I added a tiny black and white flower brad for dimension. I think it looks a little bit like the woman is wearing a pin.
Because the stamp was perfectly sized for the trading card, I simply cut the white stock to mount onto a black backer piece and was finished.
I have been using Malmero Pearl card stock from CutCardStock.com lately. These black and white papers have an iridescent sparkle to them that is very subtle.
Very simple, yet elegant.
