What is blue, yellow & black?

These colours represent this weeks colour challenge we are having over on Bloggabella. I must say I really struggled with this colour combo- it took 3 coloured images until I settled on the 3rd.  The other two didn't make it!

I used Fishing Peep for my image today- these peeps are one of the cutest image lines Stamping Bella has - I sure hope she comes out with more (hint, hint). 

I didn't want to use plain cardstock for my black, blue & yellow theme, so went digging through my 6x6 pads of paper.  I must tell you I have tons of paper, but not too much with these colours.  But I did manage to find a couple of pieces by MME - Stella Rose - Hattie papers. Image was stamped on bella's bestest white paper then I coloured using copics and shaded with pencils. This image also comes with a sentiment which I used.  Finished off with some stitching. As an after thought of my picture taking, I am going to add some glossy accents to the fish's eye.

Stop over at bloggabella and check out all the entries this week.  Leave a comment for a chance to win some bella bucks.

Next week for our challenge we have sketch #11.  If you would play along with us - hope you do- just email Emily your card by thursday night - again some bella bucks up for grabs just for sending in your entry.

For all my fellow American friends - enjoy your nice long weekend!

Thanks for stopping by today!

I was sorta glad I took the week off when I saw this colour scheme, bt I have to say, you rocked it along with the rest of the babes.

I like this card and that you used a pretty pattern paper for the colour theme! Fantastic shading too!
