It's time for a new challenge over at Some Odd Girl and this go 'round we want to see you color your stamped images completely in black and white! That's right, just think of it like you are creating a cool black and white photo or movie still... everything is in shades of gray. No skin tones, no red lips, no blue eyes, everything that you color has to be black and white. You can still go crazy with color on the rest of your card design so that the entire card doesn't have to be completely monochromatic.
Now you know I loves me some color but I actually couldn't wait to give this a go since it isn't a technique that I do very often. And considering the time of year I thought that it would make for a really cool looking Halloween card. Then when I spotted the new Witchy Mae digi... well let's just say that it was a 'no brainer' on who would be getting the black and white treatment. ;)
I mean, come on?! Isn't she fabulous? This new Mae so reminds me of a vintage Halloween pin-up with her flirty pose and ooh la la ensemble. I just love her to bits and am keeping my fingers crossed that we see some more SOGgies like her in the future.
As for the rest of the card, I paired her up with a mix of Authentique's Glowing papers and some Tim Holtz paper that looked like a bunch of different vintage Halloween cards, which I cut apart to create little accents here and there. And I actually shaded the circle cut out around Mae with some C0 to make it look more like the moon behind her but I had a hard time picking that up in the photo so you'll just have to take my word for it. :)
Okey dokey, so now it's time for you to get inspired and show us your black and white coloring skills! You've got until November 1st to enter a card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do.
