Mo's Challenge #132-favorite color combo

Yay, I get to join in the fun once again this week....Although I like many colors, my most favorite color combo is black and white (with a touch of glitter of course...lol). This week I did do my card with the black and white color combo but added a spot of red here and there. I colored this adorable digital "big shoes" with both copic markers and charcoal pencils...(I am attempting to get a lot better with the charcoal pencils, so I continue to practice). I just love this image and it so reminds me of my granddaughter when she was smaller...


As you can see, I colored the skin on this cutie with copics and also the red flowers and heart with copics. I then used red glittah to pop them out. The rest of the image was colored with light, medium and dark charcoal pencils. I put a little crystal effects on the ribbon and shoes to give added dimension. I used SU basic black and whisper white c/s for the base and trim...and discontinued SU dsp for the accent strips..I found some iridescent bling in my stash to give the card a little more pizazz...

Thank you for stopping by to check out my card...I do appreciate it.

Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol
