Black and White

  I thought I'd join in another blog hop with the Yahoo Group, "Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps". The challenge for us is to make Black and White cards- no other colors. The Hop is July 29th- and stampers from all over the world are joining in!
   If you are blog hopping, you arrived here from Laura's blog. If not, you may want to hop on over to Hetty's blog for the entire Blog Hop list. And, by the way, don't you love those fun penguins on Laura's blog?

 

 I decided to try this in reverse:



The images I used (and all other M. S. images) can be found here:

Sadly, the cranes are being discontinued- there are only 2 left in the store. The frame I used is the Cloisonne Nesting Squares set.

Here is another card I made using the nesting squares- I just love this stamp!

  If you leave a comment at Michael Strong's blog you will have a chance to win some 'blog candy stamps'.

Thanks for stopping by!
