SDC38 Black & White with a splash of colour!

This week is a new challenge issued by  my incredibly talented design team member Kaz.  Here is what she has challenged us with:

"I'm setting you another colour challenge as you all did such a good job of the last one. This time it's to use black and white and add just a hint of another colour. You can make anything you like.  This week is also a non-Stampotique stamps week for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps."

I used just a little more than one hint of colour, but that includes the skin! The colour that I chose to use along with the black was a lovely rose red. I stamped Mela in Memento Black ink and coloured with my Brand Spankin' new Touch Twin Markers

Here are the shades I used...........for me that's just a wee splash! Wait until you see the Colour Map for Tomorrow's Project!  Four of the colours were for the skin alone.
I love the Blue Grey Series for Denims and the BG 1 is perfect for shading, not too blue, not too grey as you can see on her dress.

Sorry I can't give credit for the DP. It's a scrap that I've had around for ages. The little "love" brad is from Making Memories as well as the metal tag and wee brad that's attaching it!.

I used my Sizzix Border Die to make the black borders to the left of the card. A little White Gel Pen just gives the card a touch more oomph I think! Head on over to the Challenge Blog you can see the first group of designer projects there today!

Hope you have an amazing day! I'll be back tomorrow with another fabulous Challenge!

Happy Stamping!
