TSC41:Black, White and A Splash Of Color - Using At Least One Stampsmith Stamp

Thank you to everyone who submitted projects and theme ideas to this month's end of winter challenge!  Since we have just a few delicious entries for our Spring theme, we are able to highlight one brilliant aspect of each wonderful project!  Ladies, if you would like our special 'featured' badge for your blog, please contact Valerie (her link is in the sidebar).

The layering of paper, stamp, doily, image and beautiful flowers creates a real depth of interest.
Criss-crossing sheer ribbon adds a unique backdrop for the gorgeous rolled flowers.
Watercolor pencils add cheerful colors to the darling photo-realistic stamped image. 
A tied roll of paper adds an unexpected dimension and drama to this dreamy decor. 
 Congratulations to Marilyn at Crafts And Beyond who has been drawn as this month's winner of a $21 gift certificate to The Stampsmith Store!  Please contact Valerie for all of the details (her link is in the sidebar).

Thank you to Alison who left a theme suggestion for a Tic Tack Toe Challenge.  Great idea - we've never done one here before!  Please contact Valerie with your snail mail address so she can send you a wee bit-o-love (her link is in the sidebar).

And now for Challenge #41:
Black, White and A Splash Of Color - Using At Least One Stampsmith Stamp

Barbara Washington made the first theme suggestion of Black and White with a Splash of Color in the comments last month, so we ran with it!  Thank you, Barbara! :)  We hope you'll invite a friend and play along for your chance to win $21 toward your choice of Stampsmith stamps!

Our fabulous designers have been splashing each other with color already! LOL!  Here are their wonderful creations for inspiration to get you started this month!
