Challenge Tuesday - Men in Black

Hi Everyone,

It's another fun Challenge Tuesday over at Loves RubberStamps.  This week we are asked to look at a photo inspiration and we must use Black, Yellow, and Turquoise.  Bonus of using texture from the color inspiration photo.  So to start off with, here is your photo:

Upon looking at this very elegant and classy room, the first thing I thought of was my Wild Rose Studio For Men image called Celebrate in Style.  I was also taken by the chevrons for flooring.  Love that!  And I found a nice clean sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches:

Now I must mention that this sketch challenge is over, but what a fabulous sketch for my Man!  So here is the card I came up with:

Now I could have added other colors to the black, yellow and turquoise, but I just loved all these together.  My Cheveron paper came from Echo Parks - yours truely, my yellow polka dot paper came from MME on the bright side one.  I used SU card stock for the Turquoise and Yellow.  The brads were in my stash and I colored them from white to turquoise with my Copic Marker BG05.  Once again, this image is from Loves Rubberstamps, Wild Rose Studio - Celebrate in style.  I also want to mention I used VersaMagic Dewdrop in Midnight Black and am so thrilled to have found out how well this inks up negative images, thanks again to Karen at The Paper Playhouse.

I look forward to seeing your projects and what you come up with from this Color Challenge.

Thanks for Looking and for your kind Comments.
