I've been following Cardz4guyz for all this while and never realised that there is a Cardz4galz too. This week's challenge is Black and White with one other colour. I'd seen an image at Sheepski Designs which had been coloured like this. When I saw the image originally I had decided to look for an excuse to buy it. This seemed the perfect opportunity. I even took the Monochrome colouring class at Kit and Clowder (I've been doing Alyce's monthly classes and this is one I hadn't had time for). Well, after all that preparation I thought I'd better give it a go. The obvious colour to go with Black and White was red...so I opted for orange (not one of my favourites but I thought it would be striking enough). I coloured it up. I kept touching it up. I coloured the background. I hated it and cut it out. Finally, I added some spectrum noir sparkle to the dress and stuck it together. The one thing I am happy with is the snake skin textured orange paper, which has been hanging about in a drawer forever. I figured it needed a sentiment but couldn't think of one so I glued (I'd already put the card together so I couldn't use them as normal) some brads to the card. What do you think to the result?
I should really have known. I live just over the border from Yorkshire and have been shopping there many a time. Considering I refer to Sheffield's out of town shopping centre as ' Meadowhell' not Meadowhall, an image called 'Shopping in Yorkshire' was never going to be straightforward.
Thanks for reading.
