Wags 'n Whiskers - Black and White challenge plus there's a change in the challenges!


Happy Friday!!! I'm super excited about our new challenge from Wags 'n Whiskers today!! Our fabulously talented Angelique has asked us to make a black and white project.  I'm so excited becuase it's something I've never tried before. I honestly didn't know if I'd be able to color an entire scene with just six different markers all in the same color family! But I did it!  What do you think? I used the adorable Sammie's Surprise along with a Magnolia background image and a Tim Holtz fence die, and I colored them all with the cool greys.  Now while I went the cutesy route, you have GOT to see the amazing creations my Diva sisters came up with!!!!  I was astounded at how gorgeous a black and white card could be!!  Do yourself a favor and go take a peek!


I also wanted to let you know that there has been a change in the way the Wags 'n Whiskers challenge is run! You are now welcome to use any stamp or digital image on your Wags 'n Whiskers challenge project! Just follow the guiedlines of the challenge and you'll have a chance to win! I can't wait to see your black and white creations this week! Thanks so much for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!

Oh what a fun scene!! I just love your coloring with black and white. I have never done this before and I was intimidated and anxious about it. I laughed though when one of my commenters wrote that they did not like it cause they are not a fan of black and white and I should have added some color instead. LOL!
Have a great weekend!
hugs,
Chris

Hi Sharon,
This is such a cute card. I never colour any of my images in these shades, but I really love the effect. So maybe I have to try it some time :)).

Hugs Monique
