Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge--I'm the hostess!!!

I get to be the hostess this week for the Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge and I chose one of my favorite Themes which is Black and White and for a little color a red flower somewhere.  I love the  look of black and white photos and that is what I wanted my card to portray. Here is what I came up with using Flower Girl:

The image was colored with copic markers, of course, and sponged with distressed ink a black and white bow, a hand made red paper flower in the upper left hand corner and my little flower girl is complete.  The flowers on her bodice were high lighted with clear Atyou glitter pen as was her hair and the bows on her shoes.

As I glanced at the other DT cards I was reminded of the telephone game, you know the one where you whisper something in the ear of the person next to you and by the time it gets to the last person it has completely changed.  That is kind of what this challenge turned into. I have been kind of out of the loop for a few weeks due to health issues and wedding stuffs but the cards are beautiful, but not the black and white I was looking foward to seeing.  For  those of you playing in the challenge I would love to see your black and white cards with one contrasting color, I just prefer red LOL.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day,  It does feel good to do a Mo's Challenge again :)

Just stunning. I'm with you black and white and always a touch of red.

I was wondering how the DT would interpret this as well. I love black and white images. Our son, although an English Lit major by degree, became a photographer by profession. He has some beautiful black and white images. I would agree that as a contrast color, red is my go-to choice as well. A very nice card, and a great challenge for all!

Hi, Cathy!
This was a real challenge to most of us! I wimped out and used a cat image....I can't sell cards with people with gray skin. LOL!
Yours is lovely, though! That little flower girl is just so pretty.
