DYSU #31 - Black With A Pop of Colour


This week over at Do You Stack Up we are playing another colour challenge - Black with a Pop of Colour and we cannot wait to see what you all come up with!


Our generous sponsors this week are:

 Copic Marker Scrapbooking  giving 6 Copic Ciao Markers (North/South America) or a Martha Stewart Punch (rest of the world)

Shelley's Images giving 3 images of the winner's choice

Through the Craftroom Door 1 year PDF subscription

I have used this Palm Tree image from Copic Marker Scrapbooking for my card which I took into my graphics programme and coloured black. The sun was stencilled onto white card using Promarkers and the tree then printed directly onto this. 

I then mounted this onto orange and black card, added black ribbon, white highlights and a circular sentiment from Craftwork Cards and my card was complete :0)  Simple really if you overlook how many attempts it took to get the tree in the right position!!

The rest of the DT have created some amazing cards so please do take a look and hopefully, you will be inspired to join us for this fun challenge.

Hugs
Denise xx

I am entering this card into:
Freshly Brewed Challenge #58 - Hot (for the month of August)
