BnW Challenge - Complimentary Colors



Happy Monday and welcome to a new fortnightly BnW Challenge! This time our super talented Lils is the host and she wants us to use "Complimentary Colors". Simply explained that means use a pair of colors that are opposite on the color wheel, e.g. red and green.


 

For my DT creation I chose the colors blue and orange together with the cute 'Sweet Dreams' image from the 'Forever Young' collection.

I stamped the image onto iridescent cryogen white paper using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the cutie using my Copics. The sentiment is from Whimsy ( this is one of the free sentiments Denise adds to orders). The leave flourish is from Cheery Lynne Designs and the border punch is a MS punch. All other embellies are from my stash.

Copic colors used are:  B 000-00-01-04-06; YR 0000-000-00-12-15-18; E 50-31-25 (Hair); E 000-00-01-11 (Skin). For shadows and to tone the colors down a bit I used: T 0-1-3 and W 00-0-1-2-3-5


Thanks for visiting me today and I hope you like to join in on this fun challenge over at the BnW Challenge Blog!

Luv 'n hugs,
