Week 23 - Monochromatic

Hi everyone and welcome to Week 23

Thank you to everyone who joined us last week I know some of you found this one tricky but you all did a fabulous job and it was lovely to see all your gorgeous creations.

Don't forget to pop back later to see who has won the fabulous 'Sentiment' stamp

So onto this weeks challenge:


This one should be easy, can chose Black & White, or you can go with different shades of one colour

As always its entirely up to you what you create - card, atc, altered art etc.... As long as you include at least 1 Penny Black Stamp

We have another fabulous prize this week kindly donated by Sir Stampalot

To be in with a chance of winning our prize just leave a comment with a link to your work and the winner will be chosen at Random and will be announced next Saturday.
Don't forget we will be posting a new challenge every Saturday. If you don't have a blog, then email us your work and we will be happy to put it on the blog.

Here's this weeks fabulous inspiration from our very talented Design Team, don't forgot to click on their names for more fabulous work.
