Black Swan

Happy Saturday,

Hope you have had a great start to your weekend. Lot of yard work to do this weekend. Not looking forward to it at all.

I bring you today another challenge over at MazyArt. We had another great challenge turnout. All the cards have been over the top. So this time around we hope you will join us again.
The theme this time is the color BLACK.

When I first heard Mayzy say black I thought of, piece of cake. Ok lets just say I am eating those words.

I have used Dasiy Sprite. When I saw her I thought of the movie Black Swan. Easy enough right? Not so much. I had to black feathers. I used my little copic air brush and can air to color my little bit of feathers I have on the card.

I have colored her with my copics and used some copic spica pens and another type of sparkle pen.

I have used a Cherry Lynn die cut for the leave swirl. I used my slice machine for the ballet shoes, tutu and dance cut outs. My papers are My Minds Eye Meadow Lark. I also added a couple of black pearls to each side of "dance"

I hope you will stop by the Challenge blog and check my fellow Design Team members beautiful work.
Remember you don't have to use a Mayzy image to play along. A random card will be drawn to win MayzyArt images. Then all cards using a MayzyArt image will be in a special drawing that Mayzy herself will choose the winner for even more MayzyArt images.

Thanks for stopping by and see you over at MayzyArt.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Oh, yeah, I thought the black challenge would be easy, too. Hmmmm, I may have to re-think that, huh?
You certainly did a great job with the challenge! Love your card with the embellies. Great coloring and the feathers are too cool! :^)

Great take on the black challenge, Jo! You did a terrific job with all that black coloring and giving the feathers dimension! It's a great fold you used, too!

You did a wonderful job colouring this little beauty. I really like the design of the card. All of the swirls, die cut elements, and embellies are perfect touches. Thanks for joining our Black & White challenge at Stamp N Plus. Your "Black Swan" is charming.
