[DYSU] Challenge #31 - Black with a Pop of Color

Have you seen our next challenge for Do You Stack Up (DYSU)? Yes, you read right it is Black with a Pop of Colour ... not Color!

Actually, I wanted to point out the spelling difference, because it's a nice little reminder of how international our little group is! We are thirteen girls and we represent 6 countries. The representation covers Canada, Holland, Norway, United Kingdom, and United States + territories (special props for Puerto Rico representation). So do stop by the girl's blog and leave then a colo(u)rful comment, won't ya?

I am featuring an image from Copic Marker Scrapbooking. It's a fun image to remind us that our summer days are counting down. I'm currently in Detroit and was ready for sweltering heat, but instead, it's cold and rainy. Boo!

Stamps: (Sandcastle) Copic Marker Scrapbooking
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - True Black) Papertrey Ink
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Cuttlebug A2 Embossing Folders - D'Vine Swirls) Provocraft

I colored this little image with some color pencils, because I don't own any Copic markers (yet!). Sorry, Copic Marker Scrapbooking folks!

The challenge to use only one color (and only a wee bit of it) almost drove me to madness...It was a fun way to push boundaries and decided to chop up the image and give it a tiling effect. After all, there is only so much you can do with only black, right?


Some of the girls said it looks like the sandcastle is glowing. Hopefully in a good friendly, not Halloween-y or scary way. Well, let me know what you think ;) In the meantime, go check out the other gals' *amazing* work and come play along. If I can do throw something together for this challenge, so can you!

Its just spooky good, not spooky scary Ren-yi. Some challenges are definitely hard, but that is when we are likely to learn something. I think I learned I don't play well with black! LOL
