The winner

Okay so what is the challenge?

Its a Colour Combo of Red, Black and White - well scary for me I dont really do Black and White and have a real problem colouring with Red Copics.

But on saying that I was actually quite pleased with how this turned out in the end.

This image is called Emilee and can be found Here
I printed the image twice and coloured her with Copics and added a touch of Sakura Glitter pen (which you cant see to well in the photo but IRL gives her a bit of sparkle I then layered her dress using foam pads to add dimension..

I used plain black and white papers which have a bit of a sheen and used my Martha Stewart punch around the page for the border. I added a piece of patterned vellum to mount the image on. The flowers and pin are from Wild Orchid.
Im entering this card into
Magical Crafts Challenge which is Black White and one other colour.

Your next stop on the Blog is the talented Betty so you need to gallop on over there.

Hugs Beccy
