A Black and White Hoedown

Black and white... a fabulous neutral combination! But coloring an image in shades of grey, black, and white can be a bit challenging! The digi team at Hambo Stamps have a fun challenge at the Hoedown today of creating in black and white! I used an image called BBQ Man and it took everything out of me to NOT color in some reds and other colors into it! He looks a little anemic.. LOL!

The sentiment was taken from Hambo Stamps Digi of Catching Butterflies while the image was colored in using Copics in Cool greys and a hint of black. The dp is some I had from KEI and I finished it off with some black and white ric rack and some black metal dots.

Be sure to stop by the Hoedown and see the creations the Bacon Bits have done! Have a great Wednesday!
