Crafty Card Makers Challenge – Black & White

The second challenge of the year is Black and White, always a classic combo. Here is my DT piece, Sorry about the photo, it is very sunny in here today casting shadows and the bulb has just gone in my lamp. Excuses, excuses!!

Because I’ve been thinking about using some of my older craft stuff, I dug out this medallion stamp which I have had for yonks, stamping and embossing it several times in black and white (obviously). 

I fussy cut the layers and piled it up to make the main topper for my card. The corner stamp is an old one as well (I’m on a roll).

I also need to tell you that Crafty Cardmakers has had a bit of a makeover – pop over to this post to read about the changes – and is now called CRAFTY CARDMAKERS AND MORE to reflect the new direction that some of the challenges will be taking. inkmodbannercopy2

Although I am still on the DT I will be concentrating mainly on producing pieces for our new Mixed Media Challenges which will be running every 8 weeks. We are all very excited about this and hope that you will join in. You will however still see an occasional card from me (like today!).

Your card is stunning Cindy, very elegant. I, like you, am trying to use some of those uninked treasures, but I fear I will have to be immortal to get through all of my stash lol.
Thanks for joining in with my challenge, hugs Kimx
