Today, Some Odd Girl is having a challenge where you have to colour your image in Black & White but then you can use it with coloured papers. In other words, only the image must be black and white!
Not really my favourite way to colour up an image but I had to give it a go just for fun and managed to produce this birthday card:
Paper: cardstock (PTI); Neenah; Patterned Paper (Colorbok - English Moss)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Copic Markers; Versamark
Stamps: Some Odd Girl (HollyDay Gwen); Hero Arts (CG300 - Life of the Party Words)
Other: PTI Bloom Builders #3; gems (Hero Arts); Glossy Accents; Crystal Stickles; CLear embossing powder
I matted the smokey gray notecard with a ready made clear embossed green cardstock. The background stamp used here is from Hero Arts, called Life of the Party Words. I added a strip of designer paper to the bottom and a "half" bloom in the top corner to which I added a glass gem which I had won some time ago, it was just the perfect green.
I took the easy way out to colour my Odd Girl, three shades of Copic markers, the only place that I blended was in the hair. I added some glossy accents on a few areas. I added two black gems to the clip in her hair and a bit of stickles. I also added some stickles to the edge of her dress and of course, because this was supposed to be purely black and white.....the stickles has taken on the green in its reflection! But believe me whe I tell you that I added Crystal Ranger stickles, not green!!!
She is a sweet little girl and I'll keep it for a rainy day when I need a girly birthday card.
I hope you are all having a great day!
