' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Black & White

Sunday 29 October 2017

Black & White

I did warn you there'd  be more posts this weekend...

Still working with Alison/Craftytrog techniques for the Paper Artsy challenge (her post : here), I tried a different version in a monochrome colour scheme for a manly feel:

The stamps I used are from the HP1008 set and a crakle motif (Crafty Individuals) to supplement the feeble crackles I got from the paint.

And of course, tilt the board to the light and hey presto, pearlescence...

Have a great Sunday!

Also entering the SSS Monday, Fashionable Stamping ans SSS Wednesday challenges.


  1. Really striking in the monochromatic colours Christine and a great crackle stamp, especially as it was a freebie.
