Light(ness) and Dark(ness)

If asked if there is a favorite set of images I have today, I would have to say those from Tellen's Place. They are so easy to work with. Not cute, I do struggle with cute. Although I will produce the odd one or two cute cards if the occasion arises.
Anyway, this week the challenge is to produce an item using the colours pink and brown. Pink is definitely not my colour, but we all have to make sacrifices for our friends.
This week I have tried to portray two sides of light (pink) and dark (brown). The first being that although we might have different skin tones, we can still be good friends; the lightness of friendship. So we have the girls having fun while Edward lazes away listening to his own music.

Then there is the dark of the threatening unknown. I have used Hades, one of Tellen's designs from their dark range of images to signify this. Calamity can sneak up when you're least expecting it.

I have used Promarkers for the colouring in and digi papers for the backgrounds. The boulders that Edward is leaning on are left over from last weeks project. I still have some spare lol. The tree is from Mujka Design Inc.
Thanks for looking. Tellen's Place challenges always bring out the otherside of me.

Also entering this into the Passion for Promarkers challenge as it's as many entries as you like this anniversary week


  1. Helen, you are amazing! You don't make "simple" or plain anything do you? I love this scene with the girls dancing and having fun and Edward, serene, happily listening to his music while leaving against the sofa; yet in the background is Hades, a dark, lurking monster! I love the cherry tree - gorgeous! What will happen next? Yours is a story book wonder to be had for sure! I just love how you integrated the pink and brown color combo into this - it's gorgeous! Very clever! Thanks for playing along with us at Tellen's Place! :-)
