A New Challenge at the Paper Shelter - Black + White + 1

Hello!  Thanks for stopping by!  Today is Wednesday and that means there's a new challenge at The Paper Shelter.  Have you stopped by The Paper Shelter shop lately?  Amazing stuff!  

This week's challenge at TPS is to create a card using the following colors:  Black + White + one color of your choice.   I used Black + White + Red for my card and combined it with Gothic Girl.  I was going to give her really funky hair and whatever color I decided that should be I would use as my additional color on my card.  As it turns out, she looks great with white!  The challenge turned out to be much easier than it originally sounded.  Usually when I am coloring up an image, I have 52 Copics laying on my desk and my work space has shrunk to an area the size of a post-it note. but this time, not so much.  Just a handful of markers was all it took to achieve the colors needed for the challenge.    

Be sure and stop by The Paper Shelter blog and check the cards the DT created.  They are sublime! 

That's it for now, but there will be more in the next few days.  Here's what's coming up and a couple of newsy tidbits:

Kenny K is having a design team call!  Yes, it's the moment many of you have been waiting for!  Do you love creating with the Kenny K images?  Then now's your chance to do it on a regular basis and reap the reward of working with a group of ridiculously talented people.  I won't be returning next term as it's been a whole year and I've decided to step aside and let someone else enjoy a slot on one of the best teams around.  You're welcome!  HAHAHA!  All kidding aside, my time on this team has been amazing and am honored to have had an opportunity to hang out with this great group of folks for a while and to create some fun things with Kenny's fabulous images.  For more details regarding the Kenny K design team call, head to the Kenny K's Krafty Girlz Challenge blog and to Donna's blog, Bearly Mine Crafts.  You better hurry, the call closes May 30th ;D  Good luck, everybody! 

Bombshell Stamps sketch challenge for the month of May.  Hop on over to the Bombshell Stamps blog and check out the crazy kewl sketch that Sketch Mistress Kathi has bestowed upon us.  That's not her real title, but I thought it had a nice ring.  Of course, it conjurs up Kitten With a Whip type images...LOL...hope you don't mind, Kathi ;D   

Copic Creations will have a new challenge May 15th.  Stop by the Copic Creations blog on May 15th and see what the team has in store for you.  Something colorful, no doubt ;D  There's still time to enter the current challenge.  Get those Copics out and and whip up something fun using clouds and sky!  

See you soon!  Until then, stay crafty!
