Black n' White Color Challenge

OMG! I am so late with this. My mind was somewhere else and I almost totally forgot about posting this! It's a new color challenge at Magnolia-licious Challenge blog! This week Maria has chosen Black and White for the challenge. 

This little baby gave me a HARD time..I kid you not.  I pulled out piles of black, white and cream papers trying to get something that went with the image that I colored! LOL  You know....there are a gazzilion and one shades of black.  I used the C's for the image and afterwards I felt that I probably would have been better off using the W's.   I did go over her with some W's trying to tone down the C's, but I still wasn't happy with it.

I used Farewell Tilda for my image. The Fence die is a magnolia doohickey. The farewell sentiment is also from Magnolia. All of them can be purchased in the Magnolia-licious store.

Please join us this week in the challenge!  The prize is a $25.00 gift certificate for the Magnolia-licious store

Don't forget to check out the other fabulous creations
