Bloggers Challenge- Black and White with a touch of Orange

  I am late again….. Our Friday Bloggers challenge this week is a color challemge.  Lisa-our ‘Mom’ challenged us to use White and Black with a touch of Orange.  I decided NOT to make a Halloween card, so put on my thinking hat….LOL

























and here is a close-up of the shimmer.





















 I made a Technique Junkies background called Marbled Smoosh and….. this fairy has been sitting on my desk waiting very patiently to be used- so today is her day!  This great Zentangle Fairy was drawn by a Technique Junkie the very talented Juliet Arrighti, and is available in the digi section of the Firecracker Designs by Pamela store until 12/15 (not sure if you can get her after then or not……)…….  Thre are two colors of Orange smooch, and one is photographing a tinge yellow- this is the best I can do……
  I used a variety of Orange Copic markers- from YR000 to YR7. I used Creative Inspirations Paint in Peach paint to add shimmer on her wings and the ribbon and a Copic Spica pen to add highlights to her necklace and the scallops of the punches.
The sentiment reads:
Flights of Fancy
Few folk have seen a Fairy,
But I found this one for you.
If you believe with all your might
She’ll make your dreams come true.

HERE is the link for the other players in the Bloggers challenge- stop by for some great creative B/W and Orange paper crafting ideas!

Before I really got to paper crafting, we were out in the front yard with our dog (cockapoo- Peanut).  The neighbor’s dog Charlie came to say hello- and our jealous dog jumped right up on my husband’s lap- I had to snap a picture…….
















Other challenges for my card:
Karber Monthly-Digi+fantasy (fairy)
Sentimental Sundays-Black and White and one color
Paper Playtime-Orange as the main color
Paper Pretties-black, white + one other color
Penny’s Paper Crafty-So long as it flies
Sisterhood of Crafters-bling

Thanks for stopping by today!
Hope you had a great weekend
Shelly
