Sunday Stampers - Week 21 - Ebony & Ivory

Good morning Stampers!!

What a beautiful morning we have woken up to here at Pinkle Towers. I do hope that where ever you are in the World, your day is filled with sunshine too.

Now, a very special challenge is set for today. Are you all humming that lovely song by Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney yet? :O))

The theme for this week, which if you haven't guessed already is Black & White, has been set by Jennie from The Stamp Connection. And, even more exciting is the news that Jennie is offering some delish Blog Candy which is an A5 unmounted stamp sheet called Garden Plate. I will pop a piccie of the plate at the bottom of this post so you can see what you could win. As before, the winner will be chosen, completely at random, next Sunday morning and the announcement will be made on the next Sunday Stamper post.

All you need to do to join in is make something, be it a card, ATC, 4x4, Skinny, Moo, Tag, whatever you wish, and then remember to add a link to this post telling me where you are showing your little work of art. Don't forget to use lots of inky and stampy techniques on your creation and remember to keep it Black & White! :O))

Here is the beautiful canvas that Jennie has made for you all to see:

She has used a gorgeous stamp from the Garden Plate and combined her techniques to include her new UTEE product which is available on her website too. Also, please pop over to see her Blog. She has some lovely things on there and also.....another monthly challenge for you to enter and have the chance to win more candy!!



Finally, here is the tag I have made for my entry this week: I used butterfly stamps and a dandelion head stamp for the main part of the tag. I stamped the Dandelion using Snowcap Dabber and then clear embossed this. I next stamped butterflies and dragonflies, masking them as I went and then cut three images and layered them onto the tag. I added the gorgeous sentiment and then popped little gems onto the bodies of the insects to add a little bling. The stamps I have used are all from The Stamp Connection.





Here is a little piccie of the Candy you can win.....

So, all that is left for me to say is Happy Stamping and I am looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations!

Mine are done for the last 3 weeks now - in my PB. Unfortunately you can't see the 'Happy Birthday' on the doggie one as the button on the card is deep and let in too much light on the scanner :-/
