Splash of Color DT Challenge

This week's layout was fun and truly a challenge. The rules are to create a layout using black,white, and different grays with a splash of ONE color. I had to think about this one for a bit. Picking out the file to use was also challenging because all the files are so fun!

The pattern file I picked is called "Ooh La La Collection". This collection has a lot of fun elements to use.

So lets start on the background paper. I got this single sheet of patterned paper called  "Chairs" by Recollections at Michael's. I attached it to a piece of 12x12 light chipboard because the PP is so thin. The lady portrait is "Marie Antoinette",  Queen of France from 1774 to 1792. I purchased a Marie Antoinette digital collage sheet from Etsy found here. The picture I picked was perfect because it was already black and white with a hint of pink. This is when I decided to use pink as my splash color.

The dress form is cut out of white glittered card stock. Then I took some pink glittered lace material and wrapped it around the dress form to create a dress. I added some silver trim to the waist line that I found in my ribbon stash.

The butterflies are from my Martha Stewart's punch also from the white glittered card stock and gray and black too.

For the Eiffel tower I cut it in plain gray card stock and then took a Tim Holtz script stamp and TH distress ink in "Weathered Wood" to cover the tower.

The flowers are random from my stash. And the cute little poodle...well... is just too cute!

Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out this week's challenge on the LSHD fan page on Facebook!
