Challenge #145 - Black, white with a splash of colour

So many Bright and Colourful projects, it was like looking through a rainbow looking at all the beautiful work.  We hope you get as much inspiration from our DT projects as we do from your wonderful ideas.

This week we have a regular sponsor Sarah from
Hello! My name is Sarah though I am commonly known by friends and online as Star. This derived back from the early days when I first began signing my artwork as Stargirl (and have ever since.)

Art has has a big influence on my life and who I am. Though I have dabbled in many styles and types discovering Japanese anime and it's art style is what renewed my vigor to draw. It helps that I'm also a complete geek ~ anime, Japanese culture, books, writing, fantasy, cartoons, music, musicals, etc.
I am not very crafty with paper scrapbooking or putting together beautiful cards and creations BUT when I discovered the world of digital stamping I was fascinated what others could do with the same art stamp. I have also been fond of inking pen drawings in my sketchbooks. I have focused a lot on my digital art and other freelance projects but digital stamps is that perfect niche for being creative and getting back to pen&ink drawings. I always look forward to see what creations others have turned my stamps into! 

We were generously given images to use and I think you can guess which ones were favourites of the DT.  








Now it is up to you to show us your splash of colour.  Will you choose one of the colours our DT chose or will you go will something else.  I always say my favourite colour is green but i seem to choose a lot of purple when I craft.

To be in with a chance of winner Star Stampz wonderful prize follow our simple rulesa and leave your wonderful projects with the link below.
