Mid-challenge post #97 - Black and White

Mid-challenge #97 - Black and White


Our challenge is hosted by DESIRE and the theme is ...
 "BLACK AND WHITE"  
 (grey and skin colour allowed)
This challenge will run for 2 weeks  from Wednesday 23 July to Tuesday 5 August 2014.


Hello everyone! Desíre here and it is an honour for me to host this fortnight’s challenge at DS4J. We get so comfortable with using all the colours of the spectrum, that I know just using black and white, will be pushing some of us out of our comfort zones. But, give it a go and you might be surprised how versatile black and white can be.  Of course you can use grey shades and skin tones as well, as long as the majority of the colours are black and white. Have fun and link up below!

Remember to link your projects up in Mr Linky.
We would love you to use a DS4J image, but any stamped or digi image will be OK ..... you will get an extra chance if you do use a Digistamps4Joy image

Don't forget you must use a digital stamp or rubber stamp!
And now, for some more inspiration from the talented DS4J Design Team "B" 

aNNie (image = "Ohana-cho")

BERNI (image = "Winston")

GLORIA (image = "Thinking about you")

JACKIE (image = "Fleur de lis")

JULIE ODIL (image = "Art deco beauty")

MARGARET (image = "Ring-ring")

TONNIE (images = "Dad's Austin" + "Balloon Bonny")

URSULA (image = "Art deco beauty")

Enter your paper projects (maximum 3 entries per person, each from a separate blog post) in Mr Linky HERE, and let us all share in your wonderful creations! The randomly drawn winner will win THREE images of your choice from the store, and 2 runners up 1 image each.  Of course, if you use a Digistamps4Joy image, you could win the big prize of $10 of images, and could be chosen as our Guest Designer!

Please remember to link your POST and not your blog.
Also, you must create a link on your blog back to this challenge post!

Farewell to Ema

It's a sad "Goodbye" to one of our DT members EMA who has been with DS4J since Challenge #74! EMA has been a loyal and dedicated member of the team and always produced gorgeous cards (see sample below). We will miss you Ema, but we will still see you somewhere in blogland.
