Black, white and silver romance

I love black and white cards and this week's Just for fun challenge is to combine black and white with silver.

I used a shaped black card blank for I did it: a different shaped card, and for Mami doodles 32. Ithen matted with Kanban Victorian stackables, stamping a Kanban image on the white one. As the silver one was quite a bit bigger than the white I stamped some random PM swirls with black stazon.

As is always the case with silver mirror card it was difficult to get a photo because of the high reflection (shows that the mirror card is good quality), so this is the best I could achieve, but it gives a general idea.

This card would be suitable for a wedding or an anniversary so I'm linking it for:

Little Claire 12: wedding/anniversary
Anything goes 47: celebration

Graffiti Banksy style

When I saw today's Daring cardmaker's 'inspired by Banksy' challenge I wondered what on earth it was about and what I would do. Pretty quickly I got hooked on looking through Google images. My great nephews are big Simpsons fans, so I thought I would base my card on this image (I will save it for a birthday in February):

The Simpsons picture was found on Google, the wall and hand are clipart from Publisher and the graffiti was generated in Word.

So here is my finished card - I really enjoyed putting this together (it took a few goes to get it right):
