Black & White

Today sees the start of another challenge at Joanna Sheen and this time the theme is Black & White’. There is a £15 Joanna Sheen Shop voucher up for grabs to the winner, so get crafting!


This is my second challenge as part of the fantastic Joanna Sheen DT and it put me somewhat outside of my comfort zone. I love cute images and using my Promarkers to colour them in, so using just black and white was quite hard, lol. I started off thinking about doing a  CAS card, but it ended up very frilly and feminine and maybe a bit too busy, but it’s definitely black & white!

Here’s a sideways view which shows off the pretty card blank a bit better.
