Splash of Mustard - SDC38

It's challenge time over at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog!  This week your hostess is Kaz, and she is challenging you to use the color theme of Black and White with a hint of color.  This weeks challenge is open to ANY stamp company, but if you have Stamoptique images, we'd love to see them!  Play along for your chance at a $30 gift certificate for Stampotique stamps.

Staying true to this weeks challenge, I added just a splash of color, and kept it really CAS.  Actually very CAS for me, I really wanted to break out my sponges and add color around the edges, but I did resist!



I had some left over MME papers on my desk, and reached for those as my "splash of color", paper piecing Mela's dress, then added a bit of Mustard color to her shoes and leggings.  The sentiment is a long sentiment, but I cut it up, and placed it on an Acrylic Block so that it will help to fill in some of the open space.

Details:
Stamps - Stamotique Mela, Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder
Ink - Ranger Black Archival, Copic Marker
Card Stock - Vanilla, Black, Mustard
Other - My Minds Eye Pattern Paper, SAMJ

The Stampotique challenge is open until 9/27/11 for your submissions, we'd love to have you play along.  For full details, and added inspiration, be sure to stop by the Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog.
