Challenge #97 - Black and white (grey and skin colour allowed)

This challenge is hosted by Desire

The theme for this challenge is
(grey and skin colour allowed) 
Hello everyone!Desíre here and it is an honour for me to host this fortnight’s challenge at DS4J. We get so comfortable with using all the colours of the spectrum, that I know just using black and white, will be pushing some of us out of our comfort zones.
But, give it a go and you might be surprised how versatile black and white can be.  Of course you can use grey shades and skin tones as well, as long as the majority of the colours are black and white. Have fun and link up below! 
Here is my take on BLACK and WHITE.
I have used the following images from DigiStamps4Joy:
2.     ZEBRA

This challenge will run for 2 weeks  from Wednesday 23 July to Tuesday 5 August 2014.

We would prefer for you to use a DS4J image from the store, but this is not necessary. However, to win the DTs Choice prize you WILL need to use a DS4J digi. Remember to link your projects in the linky below.
Don't forget you MUST use a digital stamp or rubber stamp!

ANY of the digis in the Store are perfect for this theme!

Team "A" members have created these stunning cards to inspire you!
ALL the images used by the DT are available in the STORE

ALEX (digistamps = "Birds)

 ANTOINETTE (digistamp = "Music sheet")

Welcome to a new DT member - Patricia St Martin

Some exciting news!!! 
Patricia St Martin has just joined the Digistamps4Joy Design Team! Pat is based in Wisconsin USA, and makes the most stunning Copic coloured cards - watch out for her cards in our future blog posts! Her blog address is

I have always loved all kinds of crafting starting from a young girl, taking Art in school, crocheting, knitting, sewing and many other kinds of crafts. I have been creating and designing cards for more time than any of my other crafts I have done. I started with copic markers in November 2009, so now I'm a copic junkie. My copics go where I go. One of my loves is all the beautiful papers and all the fun embellishments and they are so unlimited. When I start a card I never know what my card is going to turn out to be, I just pick out my paper and start coloring and let the creating begin. I fell in love with digital stamps because they are so hard to mess up when you stamp them but I have my many stamps from many different companies. I have been married for 47 years to Richard. Have 3 wonderful sons David is 44 married and has a daughter, Kurt is 40 married with 2 children and Robert not married and 1 child. Four of the best grand children in the world - Aiden, Emma, Haleigh and Isaiah. We have lived in Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA for 39 years. 

Welcome Pat and may your stay with DS4J be a happy and fruitful one!
