Default WT216 - Basic Black (04/30/09)

Good morning! Happy Thursday! Anyone up for a challenge? Last week we focused on simply using white cardstock. This week I'd love to continue with the theme of using those basics. After all, we all have them but take them for granted. And of course...right now many of us are just being a little more frugal.

This week I'd like to challenge you to find ways to use Black. Use black cardstock, black accessories...whatever you wish. You don't have to use all black cardstock...pair it up with white or some color to make it pop.

Please remember to put WT216 in your keywords section and post a link back here. We'd all love to see your work. Feel free to upload as many NEW designs for this challenge as you wish. Remember...this is a challenge, not a contest and just for fun. We want to get you stamping and having fun!

my sample - Ornate Thank You

WT216 Gallery Submissions

Thanks for playing along!

Happy stamping,
Julia

Julia - I made this card last year for my best friend in Germany, who lost her son. I still like this card, but I am dreading the fact, that in May it will be the first anniversary of this awful day....

Black, eh? Hmmm.... I'll have to find some. I'm hooked on brown, so this will be a good challenge for me.

First time I've inked up this set and really the first time I've stamped in weeks. Thanks Julia for the jump start on my mojo.

My first two ideas didn't make it past the starting post, but I had fun trying Black Magic again, as it's several months since I last used it as a technique. Probably not since it was a TLC challenge, LOL, so thanks, Julia.
