Handle With Care

Well after all the lovely sunshine here in the UK I think the weather is changing again. It's a very grey day here, and so in keeping with that here's a very fitting Stampotique challenge from the wonderful Kay.
Kay here and it is my turn to host the Stampotique Designers' Challenge this week!  What might seem like a simple challenge to most, for some, whose work is generally full of color, it really will be a challenge.  But, for all of us, it's good to try something different. I have been on a black'n'white artistic kick lately because I love the crisp freshness it can bring to a card, journal page or ATC. Whatever you decide to do, keep it black and white with just a pop of color!  

Get creative this week and join us!
It's another page in my MDF scrapbook and it's quite a significant one 'cos I'm now over half way through! I just painted the board with what was left of my Dylusions black acrylic. Oh how I miss these paints! I had to get Chris to take the top off for me 'cos it was well and truely stuck, but in return I did his own body weight in washing and ironing lol. I love how the latest release of stamps work so well with my old favourites.
I get a bit giddy when I see a double page lol.
I've used
Antique Description (stamped inside Great Moon)
This is the first time I've used Agatha, and it certainly wont be the last, she is so sweet. I hope you're busy designing more Magda :-)
