Is BLACK a colour?
Who cares what the purists and the pedants say ... when it comes to scrapbooking you will see these shades in the backgrounds, the papers, the embellishments ... or even the photos ... so let's not leave them out of our celebrations!
My recipe challenge to you today is to make a palette from the following ingredients: I want you to feature BLACK and/or WHITE (or mix them to make GREY) along with shades of ONE other COLOUR.
Will you choose a large black and white photo and have the colour in the page?
Perhaps you will select coloured photos and keep the rest of the page neutral apart from the accent colour?
Or will you keep it mostly black and white but work some colour magic into your photo?
Need some more inspiration and ideas? How about:
|Glitter Girl #106 video - "Make Mine Monochromatic"|
|Colour-core Cardstock gives quick monochromatic colour tones|
|Chalk-board (digi) papers and embellishments are ideal|
|Colour splash a B&W photo with Fotor.com - it's free!|

I've done a page for this challenge myself at my crop today (we're 8 hours ahead in the UK) ... it's here on my blog if you fancy a peek ... can you spot another voile flower?
Pop back in a couple of hours for more inspiration from another Master Forger. In the meantime if you've missed some of our earlier challenges, start at the beginning of the CKCB Wonderful World of Colour NSD celebrations here.
