Dreams...

Morning Custard Lovers :)

You know what Monday morning means, right? Yup, time for a Cupcake!


After last weeks festivities, it's kinda nice to get back into the normal routine. And we have an absolute corker as Delphine has chosen Black and White. You can use skin tones and hair colours if you need to, but otherwise, it's all about the black and white. I was really happy with this theme because I enjoy colouring images in monotone. But when it came to it, as you can see, I went in a totally different direction. And I had a lot of fun layering up all the stamps/ images with various black inks too. (I have a feeling Mrs A is gonna be holed up in The Flufferie next time she visits, she's already hankering after the Eiffel Tower stamp!)

Anyhoo, we have prizes from two generous sponsors this week, Bunny Zoe's Crafts and Crafts 4 Eternity. Pop over to Cupcake and see the gorgeous work from the girls. Otherwise, I'm back this afternoon with new releases from Some Odd Girl. Laters...

I'd like to enter this card at:

Charisma - Monochrome
Stampin for the Weekend - Monochromatic

Stuff Wot I Used...

Hero Arts Newspaper Eiffel Tower, Penny Black Brush Strokes Dicentra, Die-Namics Vertical Greetings Die and Stamp Set, Tim Holtz Ideaology Film Strip Ribbon; all from My Mum's Craft Shop, with the exception of the Penny Black Stamp

This really is a stunner. Classy, elegant, stylish... and clever, too, just using stamps rather than colouring in. One of my most favourite of your creations. Mwah!
