Cute Card Thursday Mono-tastic
The theme at Cute Card Thursday this week is Mono-tastic and I chose to use traditional black and white. The stamps which are from a new Magnolia Collection are Tilda with Jolly Roger and Pirate Edwin. The wooden bench is from a previous collection and the sentiment is High Hopes. I made the background paper myself using a Magnolia skull stamp and lots of black soot Distress Ink. The images have also been coloured with Distress Inks.
Have a good Thursday, I'm off to the dentist as my filling fell out in the middle of Tuesday night so I only have half a tooth at the moment!!

Supplies
Stamps: Magnolia - Tilda with Jolly Roger, Pirate Edwin, Bench, Mini Skull, High Hopes - Sentiment
Tools: Distress Inks, Gems, EK Success Punches
