TIOT31 - Color Challenge!

Welcome to this week's Try it out Tuesday from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! It's color challenge time (TIOT31) and this week we are working with Black, Pink and Yellow! What a fun and happy combo! I decided to go BRIGHT for this one {even though I rarely go that route as I am severely "brights" challenged}. I used another of the new Elisabeth Bell for SCACD stamps for today's challenge; this is Susan.

I used this week's sketch from Taylored Expressions on today's card, love Taylor's sketches {as I know you've heard!}. This is TESC77.

I decided to try something different today, so after I stamped Susan in Memento Tuxedo Black, I colored her with colored pencils and Gamsol {deviation from Copic markers -- shock!!}. I wanted a little bit of a different look and I really do enjoy coloring with the pencils. I still did some highlighting with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done though. Then cut and matted using Petite Oval Nestabilities. As I said, the colors are BRIGHT - I chose Yo Yo Yellow, Melon Mambo and Basic Black. The patterned paper is Melon Mambo prints from Stampin' Up!.

Big news at the store, Susana has TONS of new products in, including the NEW Robin's Nest Tear Drops, just released Pink Cat Fairy Friends, and of course the new Flower Soft! AND, last but not least, all the NEW Nestabilities Labels 5 through 9 - you'll have to race me there because I NEED some of those! Check it out!

Hope you enjoy this week's color combo challenge - we'd love for you to play along with the TIOT! Make sure you use keyword SCACD on all forum site uploads so we can check out your creations.
