ART FROM THE ROAD: Take a Word Challenge (01-29-17)

I happened upon a new art challenge site this week and I got hooked immediately on the word WORD! It is called Take a Word. While themes are generally words, this week happens to be a color challenge: black, white and a touch of red.

One of my favorite stamps is from Stampotique Originals and is called Frida Grande. Frida is beautiful in black and white alone, but easy to add red to her hair bow, her jewelry, her lips or, in this case, the neckline of her dress and lips! The background is a script stamp, also from Stampotique Originals, and is called Vintage Script.

If you love challenges (and words!), come check out the Take a Word site here.

  1. Welcome to Take a Word and a big thankyou for sharing your artwork with us. Frida is always a beautiful subject and your touch of red against black and white is perfect. Exquisite.

  2. I always like black & white with a pop of colour. The red looks marvellous on Frida - well done, Kay!

  3. Thanks for bringing Frida to our challenge, Kay. The pop of red enhances her portrait well!

  4. This is perfect for this challenge.
    Nice work!

  5. I'm enjoying a scroll around and had to pause here for a quick "wow" - I love that dramatic pop of red against the b&w - brilliant!
