Arty Girlz Challenge

I've just found this challenge blog and couldn't wait to get started on today's challenge which is
Challenge #29 - Black & White


Here is my card. I used Rouge de Garance for the background paper. I then lightly brushed the edges with Gesso. With white embossing powder and versamark I stamped the Rhonna Farrer swirl stamps. The image and sentiment are from Art Journey and I stamped them both onto stamp board with black stazon. I also scratched out some of the highlights on the little boy stamp. I then edged each piece of stampboard with some black UTEE.
Papers:- Rouge de Garance
Stamps:- Art Journey, Rhonna Farrer
Stampboard
