Here is a cute card that I made in order to enter another challenge over at Mayzy Art. I just can't express how much I love those stamps!
The challenge this go around was "Black", which is deceptively hard! I had no problem with which stamp I wanted to use and what the sentiment was going to be. 🙂 The moment I saw Xandra and Vespa, I knew I had to make a card that just said "Ciao", in honor of my favorite comedian Eddie Izzard. 😀
Coloring Xandra was challenging, but very fulfilling. I wanted to create her mostly in black and grey, but I also wanted the Vespa to be black. So the challenge for myself was to use the same 3 colors (C3, C5, C7) with a tad of black to create three different shades of black - one for her hair, one for the coat and the third for her Vespa. The hard part of this challenge was trying to pick out my cardstocks that really stood out and were black (did I mention they had to be part of my stash?). 🙂 I also opted for a tiny little pink to peek out, just to mix it up a bit.

I'm really looking forward to the next challenge. Can't wait to let my skills grow some more!
