WOW! B&W with a Splash!

Hello everyone!!

I'm back to share with you the new details for another WOW challenge over at the Farm Fresh Challenge blog.  So many awesome projects from last week's sketch challenge flooded the gallery.  I for one am so happy to use random generator to pick a winner.  It would definitely be very hard for me to pick just one to win the prize, they are all so gr8!  Keep em' coming!!

Now let's get to my share of this week's WOW challenge.  I hope you are all ready for a fun color challenge.  If you read the title you might get a hint at it.  Yes, it's another black & white challenge but we're throwing in a "splash."  The splash is any other color of your choosing.  For more fun and inspiration from the very TALENTED design team visit the FFC blog or click HERE to be directly linked.  I am so blessed to be on the same team as those ladies.  They know how to bring it when it comes to inspiration.  I just love them to pieces!! ;)

I chose to go with red as my splash of color.  I don't know if it's because I'm anticipating going to Anime Expo this weekend, but I made another Asian martial arts card, this time featuring the cute Karate Anya.  I originally had her hair orange with darker orange highlights, but I decided to change it up by adding red highlights.  Here she is with her orange locks.

Here she is with her new red locks

I love how much richer she looks because of the darker red high lights.  Here is the rest of my card, which has splashes of dark red to go with the black and white.  So Asian yea?  hehehe..

Well I hope this inspires you play along again.  Don't forget to use black & white with a splash of another fun color.  Go bold or go soft.  Change it up, but most of all HAVE FUN!!

The W.O.W. challenge is open until Tuesday; entries are due by 12 pm CST.  The winner is chosen by random draw and wins a free digi of choice!  Please upload your challenge cards/projects to TGF Galleria > Farm Fresh Challenges 2011 > Which One Wednesday > Color Splash

Challenges that I qualify for:
M4M - red hair challenge - 7/10 - Happy to report I was top 4!! So awesome!! Click here to see in what awesome company I am with.

On a side note, tonight (Tuesday) is the anticipated finale of The Voice.  I am so torn as to who I want to win!! It will definitely depend on how everyone performs.  All I know is that it will be a gr8 show!!  Either one of the finalists could be considered The Voice, they are all that talented. 
Have a fantastic day!!

Very cool card Leanne, her new red hair looks awesome and you've totally inspired me to trying out this great color combo... thanks!
As for The Voice, after last night's performances my vote went to Dia... I even downloaded her original song! Now if only she would join the cast of Glee I would be one happy camper, LOL! ;)

I'm so glad you went with your gut and added those fiery red highlights to her hair Leanne! :) She's gonna kick some butt for sure!

Ok, it's gonna be a toughy on The Voice! They were all so good how do you choose? Ha, Ha, luv Amy's comment! I don't think Dia would last on Glee . . . they'll eat her alive 'cause she's so tame and sweet. The Gleeks are so outrageous! :)
