a home in black and white

This set I made as a gift. I thought it to be extra applicable considering the recipients has been living abroad for some 8 years, in various countries. :)
I wonder how many 'homes' I've done by now...? This one is all black and white, wich proved to be quite a challenge, but it worked out nicely in the end I think.
On the left side it's a leaf swirl rub-on, and to the right I used a text stamp in the background, before adding the metal tag/plate.

Clear skies? Atleast I made the cloud from a piece of clear plastic, stamped and heat embossed in white. 'Raindrops' in black crystal. 


Here I added a few swirls 'just because', and some of my fave flowers, with a piece of ribbon posing a leafs.


I just loooove these paper roses, stunning also in black and white.

I also like remakes of stamps, and here my little bird got tail-or fittings *lol*, and I rearranged a TimHoltz-stamp  to make the 'your'-word (originally it said 'journey'). The heart is a chipboard covered in striped paper, and on top of that heat embossed swirls to soften the strict look.

Key and heart pendants.

Fairly simple E with black and white polka dot chipboard letters.

Polka dots are repeated in the ribbon holding the mini heart-tag too.

Love birds. For no particular reason. :)
