My new favourite thing....

There have been a few challenges around lately where you colour a black and white image, and add a splash of colour. I really like the look and it seems to be an up and coming trend so I thought I would give it a go.

I thought it would be really hard to do, but it turns out that it's not half as bad as I thought, and it's really easy to match up your backing papers when you are just focussing on one colour.

So, I had a lovely time yesterday, colouring some black and white images, and here is my second attempt, using a gorgeous Teddy Bo stamp that came free with a magazine, a few months back.

So for this card I have focussed on Orange.....she looks a bit like a pumpkin!

The gorgeous papers are frmo the Milton range at Wild Rose Studio, and they are all backed up on to plain black card.

Here's a close up of the teddy.

I made this card to enter the following challenges:

Teddy Bo - Black and white with one other colour
Make it Monday
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
The PaperShelter - Anything Goes

Well that's my last crafty offering for now. Sadly it's back to work after a lovely week off, so I'm pretty sure that my crafting 'me time' is going to be depleted now as I try to catch up with all the madness and mayhem at work.........oh to win the lottery and get out of the rat race!!!

Wishing you all a happy week ahead, and thanks for stopping by.
