It's AAA Card Challenge time

It's Sunday and it's time for a new AAA Cards challenge.
 This week just happens to include one of my favorite techniques - Stencils.
 I pulled out one of my favorite stencils from The Crafters Workshop.  I simply used black embossing paste on a piece of black cardstock.  I love the matte finish to this embossing paste and the slight texture.  
 For a simple accent, I used some of my favorite flower stamps to create these three awesome flowers.  The set is from Altenew Stamps.  This set is so much fun to use.  The flowers are stamped in layers and just about any color works.  You don't even have to use all three layers.  I stamp the black outline layer last.  The word strip is from another set of stamps.  I love that these look like tape. 
Here is a different view of the black on black embossing paste.  It was a little bit hard to photograph so the details showed.
And for a photo...

Is this CUTE!!!! We stopped in the tiny town of Harmony and this was set up for photo ops when they host events. When I walked up to it, I thought it was so fun that the cows on the hill were in just the right spot.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)

Amazing stencilling, looks so effective black on black. The picture frame is such a great idea, more places should do this.
