Creative Card Crew #15 - Black and One other colour!

Over at Creative Card Crew, the challenge this week is to create a card with the colour Black and only ONE other colour (with the exception of skin tones!)

Sooooooo.. What a challenge. It really made me sit and think for a while as I didnt know how I was going to create it, but here it is!

Using one of the Gorjuss Girls that I've not used in a couple of weeks, I decided to colour her in with my Copics and using only two colours and using them to shade - Aqua and Black (with the Blender Pen which doesnt really count if you know what I mean hehe).
I coloured the little fox in with black and then blended him out with the blender pen as I did for the hair - What an effort it was for the hair - It worked out well tho :)

Backing paper from Donna at Bearly Mine Designs - Designer Extreme Vol II CD - Packed full of colours for every crafting need! And I mean Every need!

Here is an up close pic of her, I think she looks stunning in these colours. I could have had an Aqua Fox, he nearly ended up White, but as white wasnt allowed, I had to go for the black look!
Here is an up close of the other Gorjuss Girl I used for the inside of the card. I coloured her the same way! Highlighting with the Inkssential pen!
Here is the Insert - Brilliant inserts easily printed off from the CD created by Donna over at Bearly Mine Designs - it is named Designer Inserts Extreme and I just love using them! So much to choose from!
The flowers are from my punch and the little gems are from my stash.

I kept the card simple, but I think it looks elegant, even if I do say so myself!

Thank you for looking and taking time to leave a comment if you so wish!

Wowzers Kim, your card is awesome. I love these gorjuss girls and you have coloured both to perfection - ooh it would be interesting to see what an aqua fox actually looks like! Your card is so beautiful inside too and those cd´s of Donna´s are the best money I have ever spent on crafty goods.
Thank you for playing along with the Creative Card Crew this week.

Wow Kim, what an awesome card, love the color you chose to go with the black, very wise choice, and it's nice to see you found a great paper to go with it as how you've decorated the inside as well for the insert. Simply stunning my dear.

Beautiful - I love that shade of blue! And the inside of your card is as pretty as the outside, I'm afraid I always tend to forget about the inside!
