The Color Black Oh MY!

Good Morning
I'm here with a new challenge card for Color Me Creative, Our Theme for the challenge is to use BLACKS/DK GREYS

color ANY image ANY way you like---but it

You need to have black/dk gray elements within your images

(so black hair, black fur, black clothing, etc. --use grays to create tones of black)

We want to see you use YOUR COPICS, ProMarkers, other alcohol markers or Colored Pencils!!

Our Sponsor this time is
One lucky winner will get a 15.00 GC to Milk N Coffee!
I was lucky to have a chance to get to create with "Tiffany Swimming in the Beach"
Thank you to Milk N Coffee for this wonderful image that I got to use:-) she was wonderful to work with!

I paired her up with EP Paridise beach and used a tiny bit of surfboard paper on the fishtale banner from MFT and the Marianne D "florish die" in black seemed to be a wonderful add on !
I used Copic markers to color her hair and bathing suit, Most of the "c" color family for her hair and a hint of red in R27 & 24

Don't forget that Suzanne will be traveling throughout the next 12 months doing "In Person" classes if you would like to check go HERE

Other Challenges I would like to enter this are :

OKR Stampede: End of summer
Delightful Sketches: Dies and Punches which I used two different dies
Supplies used were:
Image: Milk N Coffee Tiffany Swimming in the beach
DP: EP Paradise Beach
Die: Swirl is Marianne D and Banner tag set is MFT Fish tale flags
Flowers : Wild Orchid Crafts
Copic markers used mostly in the "c" family
Thanks so much for stopping by today:-)
