Same Lolita Two Ways

I really admire all the lovely black and white images that I see around. I wanted to try doing my own. I used the C series gray Copics to color 30's Lylah. I used papers from my stash that were perfect for a black and white card. I added faux black stitches around the image.

I decorated the inside of the card using the leftover papers. Check out Rhonda's challenge to decorate the outside and inside at The Latte Lounge.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Tickled Pink #9 - sewing
2. Digis with Attitude #20 - anything
3. Cardmadfairy's Digi Days #3 - glitz and glamour - I think black and white is very glamourous and I love the silver butterflies on this paper.
5. Craft Your Days Away #15 - black and white

I made a card using the same image, but I wanted to see the effect of a bright accent color. I think red goes perfectly with black and white. I colored 30's Lylah with Copics. I tried to make her hair and hat shiny on this card. I added red Stickles to her hat band as well.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Make it Colourful #9 - color with shine
2. One Stop Craft Challenge #121 - black and white +1
3. The Crafty Pad #111 - use a ribbon
4. Paper Sundaes #59 - stripes
5. Craft Your Passion #48 - anything goes

Please consider voting for my digi scrap kit Bella Luna - just "like" the preview. You can find the details here.

Happy Crafting!
