Black and White

Morning everyone, we have a cool Black & White challlenge for you at Totally Papercrafts this week.
Our lovely teamie  Mel has chosen the theme, in honour of her new puppy, Harley - who is wreaking havoc at puppy training classes!! :-)

So, any papercrafting project is allowed as long as you stick to black and white only (you can add a little skin colour if needed!)

This challenge tested my photography skills too.  This is probably THE most photographed card in my blogging history!
It's been shot from every angle, in every room in the house, over several different days. And this is the best I could come up with :-)

Because of the dramatic black and white, I have kept the design pretty simple. 
Even Teddy Bo is just printed out like that - I haven't added any shading.  Which makes it a great image to use if you want to make a quick card.

We have 2 generous sponsors for you this week,
Crafty Emma, with a £10 voucher to spend in her store and
Amber Ink with a $15 Gift Certificate.
Check out the challenge blog to see the excellent work of my teamies and we are joined this week by a couple of the Amber Ink DT, who have made awesome cards.

Challenges -
Divas by Design - Monochromatic
Bearly Mine Challenges - One for the Boyz

6 x 6 Card Blank and black pearls from Crafty Emma's
Digi Papers from Pink Petticoat / Digi Image Teddy Bo / Maya Road Calendar Stamp /
Sentiment from Craftwork Cards / Ribbon and heart button from my stash
