#44 Black White and One!

No no, I'm not talking coffee... it's our theme for the this week's challenge at the Card Crafter's Circle! Our challenge is to use the colours BLACK, WHITE and ONE OTHER COLOUR.  Our sponsor this week is the super Digi Garden!

I used the super cute Snowbear image ... just couldn't resist him!  My chosen 'colour' to add with black and white, is PURPLE. I don't know why, but the camera flash has fiddled with my image, and the light lavender that I used on my bear, came out looking blue... oops! I can assure you, it's a light lavender on the card!

I imagined this little fella against a dark sky, and snowflakes, and came up with using vintage Core'dinations CS to compensate (with a little stardust Clear Star pen dabbled here and there.  I coloured Snowbear with a Spectrum Noir pen, and added Clear Star pen to the coloured sections on his scarf and cuffs. The rest of bear is not coloured at all.

I continued his snowline left and right to match the matting, and filled in with Clear Star pen.  I fussy cut, then fixed the image flat at the base, and with foam tape behind his head.  I then wrapped a purple organza ribbon around the base. I continued matting with white then more of the same purple, before fixing all to a white cardbase. (I am really into white cards at the moment!)
I added some purple rhinestones at the top corners.

I'm entering this creation into these challenges....
