Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge #39 - Black & White theme

It's time for a new challenge over on the Just Cute Bears & Friends blog.  Challenge #39 is to use Black and White with one other colour on your projects. 

For my DT card I selected this adorable oriental kitty image from Queen Kat Designs, she's called Tanuki Chan by the artist Che Gilson and I just love her! 

I coloured the image with Promarkers in shades of grey with touches of Red, as my additional colour, before cutting out with a large scallop rectangle nestie.  I added Black Soot Distress Ink to the image layer while the die was still in place to give it a white frame.  The Black & White background paper is from my stash and I cut the black circle layer using a nestabilities Beaded Circle die set.  The butterfly border at the bottom was punched with a Martha Stewart punch with Stardust Stickles added to give it some sparkle.  I added Glamour Dust over Glossy Accents on her fur collar and plain Glossy Accents on her lantern.  The red flowers were punched with a 'punch & emboss' set by Nellie Snellen and the red gems are from my stash.

I do hope you'll play along with us on this challenge and I'm looking forward to hopping over to check out your Cute Bears & Friends projects.
