Black & white plus one other colour.........


It is time for a new challenge at Digi Choosday Challenge - as you know our challenges are always Anything Goes but the design team like to have a theme and this week we were given black and white and one other colour. PINK!!! Sorry, that was what I thought as soon as I saw the challenge!

REMEMBER to get to the main blog and grab that DISCOUNT CODE for use for TODAY ONLY! You have til midnight tonight to grab a bargain.

Ok, so I've got to use black & white and one other colour. As you can see above, I immediately went to pink. Ok, so I have my colour palette, what to use, hmmmmmmm

Enter Horace & Boo. Yes, the perfect (or should I say Purrfect) character collection for a black and white theme. 

So I rummaged through my gorgeous Horace & Boo Collection which you can find here. I could have used a precoloured image but wanted to use my pens. So I opted for 'Friendly Cuddles' - because everyone needs a friendly cuddle now and then!  

I made a 7x7 card and kept it black and white, I embossed the white backing card to break up the vast whiteness! I cut out two scallops for a topper and then I cut the image out on my Silhouette. I then coloured with my Copic Markers, introducing pink into my image. Yes Horace has a pink collar, but real males wear pink don't you know? 

I added a satin pink ribbon for that burst of colour. The sentiment is from the same collection. 

So hop over to the main blog to see what else the design team have come up with, there is lots of inspiration for you to look at.

Remember to come join in the fun with us, you can use any medium you like and the theme is anything goes.

Hope to see you soon!
