Black and White and One Colour

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Lexi's Creations and the theme this week is:

BLACK AND WHITE AND ONE COLOUR

so that gives a lot of scope for your creativity.  Here is what I have made for the challenge:


I have used Lexi's cute little Baby Flying Ant which is available  here at Fairy Dust Crafts.  He has been coloured with Copics and Stickles in Gunmetal added to his eyes.  I have used mirri card for the backing and flowers which have been cut with Spellbinders and Marianne dies.  The papers are a really old DCWV pad.  Gems from my stash have been added to the centre of the flowers.

Our sponsors this week are:


and they have very kindly donated 5 digi images of the winner's choice from their store.

Please pop over to Lexi's Creations to see what my talented team mates have done.  You have until 27th May to enter the challenge so please go over to Lexi's to join in the fun!

Thanks for looking today, see you tomorrow, take care xx
