Hello, blog friends!!! 

It's a Wednesday challenge time once again at The House That Stamps Built.  Every Wednesday there is a new challenge.  One week it will be What If? Wednesday challenge which is when Wendy (owner of Repeat Impressions Stamps) creates a sketch challenge for us all and the following Wednesday one of the DT Rock Stars will come up with a challenge of their own for everyone.  

This week it's my turn to challenge you in my Designer's Choice Challenge and so my challenge is for you to create a card using ONLY black, white and grey.  No colors.  The inspiration for this challenge came when I was visiting my mother in the nursing home and we watched an old Cary Grant and Rosalind Russell black and white movie together, "His Girl Friday".  

My Rock Star teamies did a fabulous job with this, it's not easy trying to create with just these colors, but I think you'll agree they made stunning projects.  

                          Deonna  -  Geri  -  Joy  -  Joyce  -  Karen  -  Melissa  -  Patti J

We hope you'll play along with us and create your own black/white/grey card and post it at The House (which is where you can get all the details as to how to enter the challenge).  There's a fabulous $25.00 gift certificate for RI stamps if you win it.  

The Stamps I used for this card are RI#9403-P "Quilt Frame" and 9408-H "Friendship Quilt Square" both from the "Quilt and Stained Glass" collection.  For the sentiment I used a portion of RI#9717-C "Happy Hello" from the new "Contain Yourself" set.  I simply covered the upper part "a happy" with scotch tape, inked up just the "hello" section with black ink, removed the tape and stamped.  I colored the quilt squares with Copic Markers from the cool, neutral and warm grey collections then went over the panels with my "Wink of Stella" clear glitter pen.  

Thank you so much for stopping by.  Have a super wonderful weekend!
