Black and white plus one

I thought I'd do another little card for our challenge over at St Luke's Charity Cards Challenge this month which is to do any card you like but limit your colours to just black, white and one other colour of your choice.  For my first card I used teal, but this time, I've gone for more black and pink as my accent colour, but this time I wanted to show you can colour character stamps in a limited colour palette.

OK, so perhaps choosing a zebra for this is a bit of a cop out as you can't really do anything other than black and white on him!  I love this little guy - he's called Stripes and is another great character drawn by Crissy Armstrong, this time in rubber from Kraftin Kimmie.  I am making him my second entry into her DT call which is currently on this month - click the link below to find out more.  I coloured him using my copics C1, C5 and C9 for the black, with W1, W3 and a hint of W5 for the "white" with a tiny bit of pink on his nose - hardly any actual black at all which is the secret to black and white shading oddly (handy having a comic expert for a husband sometimes!)  The card is finished with some DP from My Minds Eye, a black matt and black base card and a sentiment from Lili of the Valley which I thought was appropriate as it looks as though the butterfly has brightened Stripes' day.

Thanks for visiting.
