Bloggers Challenge in Black & White

Our challenge this week is to find some inspiration in something we see and recreate it into something we made. I personally have a very hard time with these challenges, my mind does not open to this page. I can't tell you how many hours I spent of this challenge...you really don't want to know. So here is my inspiration at the right, and my challenge down below.


I call this - A STUDY IN BLACK AND WHITE -clever name I thought! (chuckle) The background is done with the Faux Shaving Cream technique, from the 5th Edition CD from the Technique Junkie's Newsletter . It really shows up well when using a bold stamp such as this background. Claudette, I think she looks like her, adorns the card. Stamps are from Stamin' Up! and Artstampn.com.

Please be sure to check out ALL the other blog challenge partners, links are on my side bar.
