Challenge 24: Red, Black & White

Hi everyone! It's time again for another challenge! This week we have picked a colour theme, 'Red, Black and White'. You can interpret this in anyway you want to and make what ever you want.

We hope you have fun taking part.

Congratulations to, Rainbow Lady and mueppi you have won last weeks prize a beautiful Hanna stamps each!

This week's Prize, supplied by Crafty individuals - is this gorgeous Rubber Stamp. Everyone who takes part in this week's challenge by (10pm Monday the 4th of August GMT) will be entered into a prize draw and one lucky person's name will be picked at random winning this stamp. (good luck!!)

Jo, Fifi, Lesley, Becky, Kate & Wendy


Card I masked the bird on the stamp then inked up the stamp with black ink, removed the mask and added red ink to the bird only, then stamped this onto white card. I mounted the stamped image onto white card and positioned this on the black card base. Using white ink I stamped swirls to the top & bottom of the base card then highlighted with clear glitter glue. Finally I used clear glaze on to the bird to make him stand out.

I covered my card in DCWV patterned paper, stamped an image and embossed the outline, then coloured in the red parts with an embossing pen and clear embossed those too. This was matted onto the card, with a message, and then I stamped 3 flowers and coloured and embossed in the same way, cut them out and added them to the side.

The challenge of
My Time To Craft this week was to use the colours Black, White and Red on a card! This has to be one of my favourite colour combos and I have been waiting for a chance to use this image from the Joanna Sheen Dancing With Shadows CD!. The backing paper is also from the CD. Embellished with Red stain ribbon and a 'Just for you' greeting.

For this weeks challenge I stamped the background with a small floer stamp. Then I stamped a dragonfly designed by Linda Luckin onto acetate and added black stickles to the wings. I then added a piece ribbon and a few words. I mounted it all on red card. Finally three red gems were added for the dragonflies body!

I made my tag using black cardstock, red & white beads and a gold ribbon. I drew a hart shape and then stuck on lots of beads. The ribbon has been secured with 2 eyelets.

I coloured the AJ download with distress inks and drew around the image with black pen. I made a matching tag and added a Penny Black sentiment
