Challenge #205 - Color challenge time - BLACK and one other color

Black never goes out of fashion, and its also a good colour to wear if you just want to fade into the background..........but this challenge is all about STANDING OUT.  

Play along with the black cat Poobah and use black and one other colour in what you make.  Any other colour will do - you'll be surprised how good it looks.

Chat Noir here, busy making lots of cards for my friends this week.  My work bench is littered with butterflies and offcuts, but here are some finished things to inspire you.  You can see I used only one colour on each, but several shades, and I think that's just fine.

I think some of these might find their way into frames instead of remaining just a card.

Electra here   I didn't have a lot of time this week and so made something kind of quick and funny.  You have to ignore the flesh colour in my piece, it's really invisible.  The colours I used are black and WHITE

(And it would have been blue, except that Anna decided against it.)

Deena here:
I made this card for one of the girls' dance teachers with a bit of tulle from their costume...they danced to true colours from Cyndi Lauper and received awards for best use of costume in the competition they were in...they all started out in black and during the song each person changed to a coloured tutu as an anti-bullying dance....

Rosemary here and this was a good challenge for thinking a BRIGHT pop of color to be set off by the black and so I used hot pink and orange for two cards.  The kind that are wonderful to pop into an envelope and send off to a friend for a little lift courtesy of the mail!  Clean and simple and hopefully CHEERFUL.

Please post a link to your creative project below in the comments.  Our next challenge will be posted on April 5.

It's been a while, but I'm back! I used a couple of other colors, but the focal point is black. Blessings!
