Humble Pie Challenge: Classic Black & White (plus an accent colour!)

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 2010...can you believe it?? Why is it the older you get, the faster time flies by? lol I would like to take this chance to wish you all the very best in the new year!

Well, to start the new year off, we have a brand new challenge over at Humble Pie. This week, we are putting forth a colour, white and ONE accent colour. Now, I have to admit that I didn't have much in the way of black and white paper, which kind of surprised me, as I love black and white cards! What a shame...I had to go out shopping for some! lol I found this fabulous Daisy Bucket paper. Actually, I picked up several different patterns. I also got a chance to break out my brand-spankin'-new oval Nesties for the focal image! I used my Labels 8 to make a shaped card. I chose to use Flower Maggie as the image for my card. I was inspired by all those pictures of kids in black and white, where only a bit of the image is highlighted with a colour. So, I used a red Copic marker to colour just the flower...and to add a touch of colour to her cheeks. The ribbon is recycled from a Christmas present.

I hope you get a chance to play along over at Humble Pie this week! Hop on over there to see the winner from the last challenge, and to see the examples from the rest of the Bakers! Remember, if you are on the hunt for some Humble Pie images, you will only find them at The Town Scrapper. Give Phebe a call, or send her an email for more info!

Hope to see you back soon stampers! Remember, I still have SECRETS to reveal!!
