CMC Challenge - Bring Out the Black
Morning peeps. Hope your Saturday morning is off to a great one. It's time for another Color Me Creative Challenge. I am a huge fan of adding a little bit of black to decorating to make the room feel a little bit more "grounded". It just seems to add a sense of placement amongst your room. However, I don't seem to use it enough of my cards so this challenge was a great one for me. We want to see you have at least 40% of your card or project with accents of black on it. Here I colored my retro girl from Milk Coffee with black hair and pants. I'm always intimidated with coloring something black but working with Suzanne's classes at CMC I have been able to break through all that silly intimidation mess and get on to my Copic coloring. LOL I have to say I sure do like this hip chick! Them I added a black base for my card and then the flowers and ribbon. See how the black just adds a little bit of something, something to the card? If I would of used white it would of came off a little too soft.
Now why don't you give it a try? Let's see how you incorporate some black into your next project. Remember you have a whole two weeks to practice and get your card loaded. Make sure you have your project linked up over on the CMC blog by FRIDAY, August 31st.
Hugs and love~
