I hope you're having better weather than here, it's so grey and misty :( Fingers crossed the sun that's forecasted for the weekend actually comes :)
I saw the challenge over at Saturated Canary of black and white and one other colour, and I decided to have a go at it. I only have three grey markers, so didn't think it'd actually work that well, but I'm actually kind of happy with the result! I've seen people make fab B+W cards, but never thought I'd be able to do anything like it, but it's something I might try again maybe :)
I made this to give to a friend who's been going through a hard time lately, and even though neither of us are fans of Rhianna, some of the lyrics to her song Umbrella are going inside this card, they fit it PERFECTLY:
When the sun shines, we’ll shine together
I told you, I’ll be here forever;
I said I’ll always be your friend,
I’m gonna stick it out til the end.
Now that it’s raining more than ever -
Know that we’ll still have each other
You can stand under my umbrella...
The image is from Saturated Canary, I really like her wonderful images! I need to get me some more, they're great for quirky girly cards :) the ribbon is from Joanna Sheen, the swirl is a Marianne die, the papers are from a Papermania pack, the sentiment is LOTV, the gorgeous little umbrella charm is from Ribbon Girl and the flowers and gems are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
A closeup of the image, which I coloured with Promarkers, I put Glossy Accents on the raindrops, wellies and umbrella and Stickles on her sash and petticoat and around the edge too.
A closeup of the flowers, I love the effect of black and white with a pop of colour, I didn't think I'd be able to do it at all!
A closeup of the ribbon and charm, I just LOVE these little charms :)
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
