Kick Up Your Heels

Good morning!  How's your week going so far!  Hope it's been a good one!  I've been pretty tied up, so I haven't had much time for crafting or blogging, but I did manage to finish up a card I made for Mayzy Art Challenge #003.  The theme is black.  Yikes!  This sure was a challenge for me!  I rarely color in black except for accents, but I gave it a go.

Here is my card:


I started with a card base of SU Basic Black and layered with black patterned papers from the My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two Blush 6x6 pad.  My Mayzy Art images was a freebie that Mayzy generously offered on The Outlawz site here awhile back.  I've been waiting for just the right chance to use her!  I printed her on Cryogen White and colored her with my Copics (all the Cool Grays).  I did add a tiny bit of color by adding Red Stickles to her head phones and MP3 player.  I added some silver accents to her belt and boots with a Letraset Silver Metallic Marker, which I was lucky enough to have won on Jak Heath's blog.  I also added a bit of Diamond Stickles to her collar, cuffs and skirt.


Here is a close-up of the image:



My sentiment is from Paulette at Create With TLC.  A triple-loop bow of stitched ribbon finished off my card.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great day and hope to see you again soon!Photobucket

  1. Carla, Fantastic job... You did an incredible job with your coloring. That is something I have not done yet, is coloring an image in the greys but you sure nailed it. Mayzy art image is so cute. Sorry I have not been around. I love all your other cards, all of them are wonderful. Have a wedding this week end, my son is getting married.

  13. Carla, your black and white card is super. When I saw this it reminded me of Abby/Abbey on NCIS. Don't know if you watch it. She is a different kind of girl. Great job.
