Challenge #29 is a


except its a little more challenging than usual

in that you can use


That means - no adding in white or black as an extra colour or any other colour no matter how small it may be..... (this really is a challenge - big smile!) 

Remember - you can only use one colour...

I went with Aqua which I thought went Perfectly with this Photo 
of DH & DS.......

I know what you maybe thinking...
