Black and White Challenge

Black & White Challenge
We are at the midway point of our Black and White Challenge at Aurora Wings, and it is time for the Stella team to bring you their inspiration for this theme. I used Rose Corner 1 to make a Valentine Card. My splash of colour is one red petal, as you can see, and the red mat behind the black.

Rose Corner 1
I coloured the image with Copics, using W7, W5, W4, W2, W0 and R20s. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I kept the design clean and simple, just adding some pearls at the corners. I thought going into this it was going to be super quick to do because it's just black and white. Well, I was wrong. LOL! It still took me hours to colour. I don't think I ever did anything monochromatic like this before, and I really like the way it turned out. 

Now if you aren't here because you clicked on my picture at Aurora Wings, go check out my fellow DT ladies' amazing creations on the challenge blog HERE. There are some really beautiful pieces there. I hope you find the inspiration to create your own project for this challenge. It runs until May 19. Our prizes this challenge will include:
