Just for Fun - Black and White



Goodness crafting has been a bit thin on the ground here this week, guess I'm well and truly back at work now!   Will make crafting time even more precious won't it.

At Just for Fun we start a new series this month Neet is our intrepid challenge leader.   Our subject this month is to be Men and all the angst that making cards for them can bring.   The first challenge in the theme is Black and White.

DL cards seem suited to men an easy place to start with some white card stock.  Black and White DP next, simple stamping in black on white card.  The greeting an old stamp laid flat, the (to my mind) strong masculine, image attached with sticky pads over a black mat.   

There are sure to be some events this year that you will need a masculine card for perhaps February's challenges will give you a head start, starting with our black and white theme.   As always Neet and Von have made lovely samples will you share your projects with us at Just for Fun?

Now it just happens that Fashionable Stamping Challenge this fortnight is 'Its a guy thing' well have to share this with the Fashionable girls don't I.
