Mo's Challenge #26

A Tough One!

I was really worried when I saw Peggy's challenge for the DT this week.....use black, white, and kraft!
Yikes! Then she said she'd forgotten to tell us we could use other colors with the challenge colors. Whew!
My original thought was to use red for the fourth color, as I really love that combination. After I chose this image, Karate Boy (also available as a girl), I decided to stick close to the main three colors with just a touch of yellow in his hair and  tiny star brads, and brown gingham DP.


I printed the image on PaperTrey Ink's white CS. He's colored using Copics and Prismacolor pencils. The sentiment is a stamp from Hero Arts, and the black and kraft CS is from SU!.I hand-scored the black panel to the right of the image using my ScorPal, but it doesn't show up very well in the picture.
Check out all the great DT samples in Mo's Challenge Blog for some inspiration!

I'm pleased with the way it turned out!
Now let's see your creations!

Thanks for the compliment on my "bears" card, it was the only image I though of for "brown!" ... and then @ my local Hobby Lobby, "brown" papers came in, just in time for this challenge!

Wow, Elaine! This is so dog-gone cute! I saw it on the Mo's challenge blog but had to stop by here and say Wowww! I love it, and what a cute image. I don't think I saw that one the last time I looked through the images at Mo's. :) Kelly
