Black, White, and One Color Somethings - CHALLENGE

Happy Friday All!

Boy, were the takes on last week's sketch challenge ever awesome! Thank you all for joining in with our challenge and a big thanks to Dog Gone Stamps for donating that fun blog candy!

This week we have a fun new challenge and a new sponsor. Paper Makeup Stamps and its owner and creator, Katie, have created a fabulous challenge for all of you this week, donated some yummy blog candy, and gave the DT some great images to play with. Here's a bit about Katie and PMS.....

Katie has been stamping since 2006 but paper crafting for much longer. The first moment she had rubber in her inky fingers, she knew that one day she'd like to start her own company. 3 short years later, her visions are becoming a reality. The company prides itself on a "have it your way" attitude offering stamps bare or mounted, and many in various sizes. All suggestions will be taken to heart as the customers are the core of this company.

While stamping, scrap booking, and other paper crafting are Katie's major hobbies, she is a professional makeup artist by trade. When she was first thinking of what to call her company, Paper Makeup was first to come to mind. After using it as her blog title for nearly a year, she couldn't decide if she should choose a new name, or stick to one near and dear to her heart. Since so many knew her as "Paper Makeup," it won out and Paper Makeup Stamps was born!
Katie's challenge for you this week is a color challenge. We want you to "just add" some color! Please create a project using only black, white, and ONE color!!!! If your image is a person, skin and hair color is OK. If not, black, white, and what ever color you like!!!!

Katie has generously donated 4 amazingly cute stamps from her new release for our random blog candy winner!

For a chance to win this great prize, please provide a direct link to your entry using the Mr. Linky feature below by 7pm EST on Thursday, June 25th. We will use to select our winner.

Have fun stamping something black, white, and your favorite color!

What a lovely challenge and what lovely DT cards. I would normally have gone for black and white with red or pink and not sure why I went for green as I sooooooooooo dislike green but I think it works well with the little Pollycraft girl.

Here is my card for this challenge

Best wishes
