Sentimental Sundays - Black, white and one other colour.

I was a bit intimidated when I saw the theme of black, White And One Other Colour at Sentimental Sundays. I don't really have black and white patterned papers so I had to dig quite deep in my stash.

I decided that the third colour is going to be dark gold, distressed all the edges with embossing ink and gold embossing powder. Then I covered a piece of Bazzill just The Edge with glue pad and glitter. I used the glue pad because it won't make the card buckle.

Kenny K image was coloured with warm grey Copics and little bits of warm grey Prismacolour pencils added for deeper shadows. The sentiment is from Eat Cake graphics.

The black panel was embossed with Cuttlebug houndstooth folder and then sponged with white ink.

I would like to enter following challenges:
Lord Have Mercy - sketch
Oh la la - Nothing Floral
If the Shoe Fits - Don't Stress, Distress
Crafty Emma - male birthday card
Crafty Calendar (monthly) - birthdays
Daring Cardmakers - dancing
Raise The Bar - hobby, sport, interest
Hodge Podge Shop - distressing
Cards For Men (2 weeks) - MASCULINE and birthday

Thanks for looking and happy crafting!
Hugs
Annika

I hear ya on the black/white imtimidation! My world revolves areound color so to take away that its like tying my hands behind my back. What on earth do you want me to do????
But you did very well here. The neutral colors well suits a masculine card. (although if you ask my husband what his favorite color is you'll always get the same cheeky response: "pinkle"!~ translation= pinkish purple. lol)
I hope the kids are doing better now? Its a drag when everyone is sick at the same time. :-(
