Winners Challenge 21 - In Black and White

If you are here to join the Tea, Coffee or Me? challenge please follow this link.   Please remember we are a Rubber/Polymer stamp Challenge.

If you are here to see how your Black and White entry faired you are in the right place and just about to find out.    The Winner of the challenge gets $15 to spend at Alleystamp or wonderful generous sponsor and we have 2 more top picks.    This is not a Random draw, I looked at every entry which you might think is not difficult with just a few but trust me when everyone is a goodie it is even harder to choose.

So the winner is:

This card has a classic timeless elegance which I just enjoy looking at.   To claim your prize Sue please email me zoechaos@icloud.com with Winner Challenge 21 in the subject line.    The winners badge is on our badges page if you would like to take it.

Completing the top 3 are:
The use of different elements in this joyful card and that you have made Black and White so joyful is fabulous.

Another different stylish project and I do love that stamp.   Looked on Simon Says but could not find it but my jealousy is not stopping you getting a shout out.

Thank you to everyone who joined in, we hope we will see you again soon, and don't forget to tell your friends.

Challenge 22 - Tea, Coffee or Me?

Time for a new challenge!   Christi is still recovering but this is her theme for you, Tea, Coffee or Me?

Jane and I had a lot of fun making our inspiration projects for you and hope you will join us.   We are as usual sponsored by Alleystamp who as usual will give the winner a very generous $15 to spend at the shop.

Here are our takes on the theme:


We really hope this is a theme you will be inspired to join us with, remembering to use a stamp and ink but no digis.

Challenge 21 In Black and White

The year is rolling on and now we have the wonder of long summer days.   This extension of natural light is a gift to us 'artists' trying to make the most of it.   Our friends down under are into Winter now, not that it will stop them making beautiful things.

Back last Winter one of our regulars made, for another challenge, a really smart piece in black and white.   That left me with the idea for this fortnights challenge, In Black and White.   Easy Peasy, Keep it black and white.   Once again our winner will receive $15 voucher for our terrific sponsor Alleystamp.  I shop at Alleystamp and can tell you the prices are great, the service excellent and the owner an angel who takes in abandoned kittens fostering them until their forever home is found.   Even without the great prices I'd support someone who did this.

Just a reminder that while Christi is on her break (hope you are feeling rested and better Hun) We are inviting people to join us as a Guest Designer.  If you would like to please add GDT to your entry name.

Here are my next pair of playing cards:



How do you see your black and white world please share your creations with us always remembering to include rubber stamping and no digies
