Black n White Sketch Challenge

Greetings friends!!! Is June starting out well for you? It's been rather rainy here lately. Also thanks Angela for dropping by and helping me with the rubber storm. =) Ok so today is my spur of the moment challenge! Included in this challenge is a sketch! Ooooh sketch, I know when was the last time I actually did a sketch right? I'm really going to aim at having a challenge a week... maybe we can do a weekly Wednesday something. Sound good?

Rules: Follow the above sketch using only black and white (or grayscale). No colors whatsoever except for black, white, gray. Put your entries in the gallery under contests/Blk & Wht Challenge.

Tuesday, June 9th

Prize: Secret Goodie Bag

Anjou Krelovich said...

Tough challenge! I'm gonna have to try this one....

Favorite boardgame... hmnnnn.... Masterpiece.... they don't make it anymore but it was an art auction game. So fun!

Darsana said...

Wow. I already have a great idea!!!
My fav board game was LIFE. We didn't own it, but I played it a few times and loved it. My fav that we owned and played constatntly was Guess Who! I guess it's not really a board game, but with 5 kids you tend to lose a lot of little pieces and all the pieces were attached to this one so it was hard to loose.

Elena said...

I love your idea with the each week challenges, Marie!
Games... We still play with Sergei Operation, Sorry, Battle Ship, Connect Four - they are our favorites!

Tracey Feeger said...

Connect four was my favourite game (not really a board game though) but if it had to be a board game then definately Monopoly.

Lisa T said...

Ooh, *just* black and white - tough but a good challenge! I would love a weekly Wedn. challenge - sounds like a lot of fun!

Favorite board game: Scrabble. I still love word games!

Randi said...

Oh, great sketch Marie!! And, black and white will be a fun challenge!!
And a Wednesday challenge sounds like a great idea!!

I'd have to say Life, Clue, Sorry!, and of course Monopoly!!
