This fortnight's challenge theme is to showcase a project using 
Black & White + your favourite 1 other colour (& why it's your favourite).
You MUST explain WHY it is your favourite.

Here are the beautiful creations made by our Design Team to get your mojo flowing:

For someone who likes to match the colours of any embellishments (ribbons, pearls, papers, flowers etc) whenever I add them, I found this fortnight's challenge a little difficult.  Now, I'm not usually a 'yellow' person, but when tasked with the only other colours being black and white I wanted my image to really stand out, so I chose a golden yellow colour to give some brightness to my project.

I love black and white along with many colors, so this is another hard one.  I went with a patina color (mainly because I really wanted to use this new embossing powder).  I love the way it works with the black and white!


I have chosen B & W with red. I like the strong combination, it is always very striking. You don't need to use too much colour for a balanced card.

I love black and white together with the colour that is called Larissa pink by Annette I really love the bright pink together with black and white, because it really pops. This shade of pink is a real favourite, and it even looks better with black and white.

I have chosen purple as my added colour.  It's my favourite colour anyway and I think it looks very striking with black.

 I put pink with black and always looks classy!!

What's black and white and red all over?
A zebra with sunburn

My favorite colour is green. I love the combination with black and white. The green colour stands out. 

So now it's over to you.
We hope you will join in our challenge and show us your style.
Don't forget, you MUST explain WHY it is your favourite to be eligible to win.

Good luck, and happy crafting.
Hugs from the AYLI girls.
