Black and White with Dilly Beans

Hello! It's Friday (hooray!), so I have a new Dilly Beans challenge to share with you. This week's theme is Black and White. We have a new rule, starting this week. You MUST use a Dilly Beans image to play along. Full details will be on the Dilly Beans challenge blog. Now...here' my card.

I was a little worried about this challenge, as I really do love to use color. But this was a lot of fun!!! I want to make more projects that are just black and white!

I used one of Megan's fabulous Big Eye Girls for this card. I used only black and 2 shades of gray (from Spectrum Noir) to color her in. Oh. And I used a white pen from Sakura  here and there too.

I used a Crafter's Workshop stencil and a sentiment from Inkadinkado. The rest was just scraps I had laying around. All in all, this card came together very quickly, which I was thrilled about. What do you think of the lack of color? How about playing along with us this week? Just visit the Dilly Beans challenge blog to play, and you will get to see lots more inspiration from the amazing DT. And, in honor of the new "Dilly Beans Only" rule, Megan has decided to have a BOGO sale on all digis Saturday and Sunday. Again, check out the blog for all of the deets.  Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
