Second Week of "Black and White"

This is the second week of my Challenge #80 "Color: Black and White" theme.  There have been a number of great entries so far.  Don't forget everyone has a chance as the winner is chosen by the random generator.  Here are some more black and white creations by the Design Team.
This card has a story behind it.  I am out of town camping in our motorhome and knew I had a black and white challenge running.  However, I forgot to bring anything black except I happen to have some back acrylic paint with me.  I also had my Gelli Plate so I made my own black and white paper for this card and of course used a Bugaboo image.  I placed my card on an aqua background of cardstock so the white card can be seen.
The image is 'Santa's reindeer globe' by our sponsor, Bugaboo Stamps. The background card is from an old Kanban kit - unfortunately, silver foiling is always hard to show on a photo - there is also some silver on the die cut bauble that doesn't show here. The black, white and silver pieces of ribbon are scraps that were waiting to be used somewhere.
This card turned out to be all a bit 'doodly;, I think working well with the fabulous doodle flower from Bugaboo. the image is framed with a black card postage stamp frame and layered on stamped background. A bow, a little stamped sentiment and two little half-pearls adorn the card.
For the second week of Color Inspired – Black and White/ Challenge 2, I used a cute Flower Girl from our sponsor Bugaboo. The image was framed with a decorative round vintage frame and layered on an embossed background. I also added a black floral fabric stripe and a white patterned paper underneath the stamp. A little flower and a little bow adorn the sentiment.

For my week two creation I made an ATC using a photo real stamp of Duke Ellington by Stampsmith.  The sheet music in the background is one of his famous songs -- "It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing!"  Working with just black and white leads to some pretty striking creations and it is great seeing the projects you are all entering.  Keep them coming!
For week two of the Black and White challenge I used a different Bugaboo image. I coloured the flowers and some leaves with a white spica glitter pen and the black leaves with a black spica glitter pen.  The background paper is from a Black and White Bo Bunny enchanted collection pad. Ribbon from my stash.

  1. Perfect to make your background with the paint and gelli plate (I need to get mine out again to play). All the black and white creations by the team are excellent once again - so inspirational. x
