Black and White

Good morning,

I hope everyone enjoyed the long Bank Holiday weekend - it was nice to have a little extra time at home.

I'm back today with the next challenge over at Cardz 4 Guyz and this week Sharon has chosen the theme


Here's what I made for my DT project ...

Now, I know 'Monochrome' is translated as 'shades of one colour', but for a male themed card, I don't think you can beat good old 'black and white' (which when I checked are opposite ends of the gray scale).

I used my trusty Stampin' Up stamps - 'Clockworks' and 'Gorgeous Grunge' again  - I love these two sets for male themed designs. I used Versafine ink in onyx black and smoky gray, masking the stamped images as I went along to create a collage effect.

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is stamped using my SU 'Sassy Salutations' (another favourite). 

Love the houndstooth check backing paper - although it went against my OCD to put the central panel squiffy! Lol.

Hope you can come and play along.
Hugz, Jan xx
