Black and White and a Splash of Colour.....

My friend, Sue, is on the Design Team over at Our Creative Corner.  I saw her working on her card for this week's challenge.  She did an amazing card that you can see over at OCC.  So I decided I need to join in...B&W with a splash of colour... always a favourite of mine...

Black and white with a splash of.... Pink


For my splash of colour, I chose a pretty bright coral pink ..... starting with the card base.  For my bold black and white panel I chose black card and white embossed Hero Arts Leaf and Floral background.  So pleased with the look I got.  Then I die cut a little butterfly and added some depth of colour with Worn Lipstick distress stain.  I used the stain to ink up the Hero Arts sentiment as well.  Finished with some black gems on the banner and butterfly.  Very happy with this one!  Always a bonus when you are pleased with the outcome!

Hubby is off to Sydney again today... up at 4.00am this morning and back again tomorrow night late.   So I get to control the Remote tonight.... watching Masterchef NZ.  It's the first episode.  Should be a great series this year as they seem to have a real variety of contestants.  Then my favourite - NCIS.   So that half made card will have to wait till tomorrow to get finished.

Take care
Dawn

Hey Dawn
I am thrilled that you were inspired by this Challenge and my card, you have made a wonderful Bg that is strong and dramatic, choosing the Coral Pink as your splash looks wonderful (great b/fly)
Thank you so much for joining us at OCC this week, we are so pleased to see your interpretation.
