Cheating with black and white

Morning all on this not so wonderful but wet day where I am anyway, but guess the garden and pond could do with topping up, the pond level keeps dropping and I can't find a leak in the stream so I have to presume it's just evaporation, but hopefully the rain will top it up.

Onto crafty things, a black and white card, but I cheated a little as I used moonglow embossing powder midnight violet obsidian. It means it looks black until you catch just the right angle then it reflects purple, clever or what , I love these it's like extra magic.

I used a 1920's stamp set that I got from the stamp man a few years ago although I have since seen some of the images used by Debbie Moore as different sized stamps and Kanban made into card toppers. I made a background with the smaller stamps and embossed my lady. I decided her bottom didn't look big enough so I emphasised it with a big bow!

The layout is fab like clean lines, and is by sweet stapin.

The challenges I would like to enter this card into are;-

The stampman -take 2 colour
Sweet Stampin-layout design
Really Reasonable Ribbons- black and white
Allsorts-dressing up
