Sugar Creek Hollow - Black and White with a splash of color...

Happy Saturday!

Our challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow this week is to use Black, White and a splash of color. With Valentine's Day coming, I opted to use a splash of red. Here is my card...

Paper: DCWV
Ink: Ink Jet Printer, Copics
Accessories: Flowers, Lace, Heart Doily, Branch Punch, Pearl Sprays

The primary colors I used for the bird house were cool gray Copic Markers (C01, C03, C05 and C07). The hearts are colored with Copic Markers R29 with a bit of gray for shadows.

Again, I colored the border of the Valentine Tag with R29. I used C03 and C01 for the remainder of the tag. I added some rose buds and pearl sprays to embellish the tag.

I used the sketch for the Midnight Madness Challenge as the base design for my card...

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a wonderful weekend!
