Red/Black/White Challenge...

Don't go looking for this challenge anywhere...it was my own personal challenge. I adore this Tilda image with the ladybug, which is red and black. I wanted to keep my card colors the same, but with the addition of white, of course.



I went to the Just Magnolia's Challenge site and went way back in their files and found this sketch...



I was a perfect match for my Tilda, so I grabbed my dsp scrap box and dug out several scraps of black and white papers and the ladybug paper also. It had a black and white border all the way around, but was the wrong size for the card so I cut it down to utilize the border on just two sides of my card. From there it was easy to follow the sketch. I colored Tilda with Copics keeping everything red white or black. The only thing I changed was to put SILVER beads on the card is several places because I didn't have red or black.

Here is a closeup of Tilda...



Thanks for dropping in for a visit...
