Black and White and Fun All Over

There’s a fairly new group over on Swap-Bot for those who love artwork in the style of the Stampington publications (e.g. Somerset Studio,  Altered Couture, etc).  Because many of our members expressed interest in doing a challenge along the lines of their regular feature, “With One Color Palette,” a swap was set up to make a piece no smaller than 5×7 using only the colors black, white and grey.  Quite the challenge, especially when you just know a touch of red here and there would really make it awesome.  But – no cheating! – black, white and grey only.

I thought it would be a nice touch to use images from a couple of the free “collage sheets” that come in some of Stampington’s magazines.  I’d been saving the old sheet music for awhile, but had to photocopy it because the original had yellowed with age.

Flower?  Check.  Bling?  Check.  Now if only I could add just a hint of red…

    Lovely Lisa! The trims are gorgeous. I like the challenge of working in black and white, it stretches your creative muscles. (I know how much you wanted to add that little bit of red and admire your willpower.)
