Black and White Challenge

This week's stamping challenge on Crafts by Carolyn is Black and White with a splash of of my most favourite although I do love black and rich cream too.........or brown and cream. I always think they look really classy.

Stamps I have used for this challenge-:

Smile, Laugh, Giggle
Circle of dots was a stamp with a heart
inside the circle......they were more use
to me as seperate stamps so I parted!!!! It was a £1.99 stamp from
a bin at Craft Central and I believe that they
have been doing the same stamps in
Michaels, USA. The word stamps are from
My Sentiments Exactly.

Happily Ever After
The sentiment stamp originally had the tiny heart attached to it but again they were
more use to me as seperate stamps.
Another £1.99 bin stamp.
The dress is another one from
My Sentiments Exactly. I really love their
shaped word stamps and must add some
Christmas ones to my collection this year.

Simply Roses
The stamps here are both by Rubber Stampede.
The background stamp is gorgeous just
stamped like this in black Versafine onto
pure white card but I also love it to use with
Versamark on white gloss card as a resist
background. The first time I used it for that
my eyes nearly popped out of my head. It
just looked stunning.
Because of the amount of detail on both of the stamps I used black Versafine rather than Stazon to get a true black colour.

Well I still have to finish the inchies for the swap and I really must do something about the DCM challenge cards too. I did ask hubby for a photo for the scrapbook card but he wasn't very chuffed about me using his photo on the web......probably frightened Interpol will catch up with!!!
Just want to say hello to the visitors I am getting from the USA and Canada.
Thanks for dropping by.....I hope you liked what you saw and that you will come back again.
Off to tidy my mess up now before starting again.
Bye for now
