I love Black and White or Black and Vanilla! The Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper is beautiful and I paired it with the Watercolor Wings stamp set. I used Smoky Slate and Black ink on the butterfly. The base for the butterfly I stamped off with Smoky Slate, the second step I stamped with Smoky Slate full strength. The third step I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. It's lovely! The two cards I made use the flip side of the sheet of DSP. At my card club, the striped was the favored side. Which one do you like best?
