Make It Colourful - Black and White with a Dash of Red

We have a fun challenge at Make It Colourful this week - black and white with a dash of red. We're sponsored this week by Tiddly Inks.

For me, Make It Crafty's Ginger the Housewife and the Kitchen wall just screamed at me for this challenge. I wanted to create a black and white kitchen and put Ginger in a red dress. I merged the images and added a sentiment and printed them out on Make It Crafty paper. I used the C- series of grey copics and R29, 27 and 24 for her red dress.

I also played with the Make It Crafty Swirly Corners. I've never played with something like these before. I decided to coat them with silver glitter glue and I really like the effect. I liked them so much I used them on the inside too!

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
1. Top Tip Tuesday #31 - squares
2. Party Time Tuesdays #13 - anything goes
3. Simon Says - anything goes

Happy Crafting!

This is SUCH a stylish retro that you should sell your design off to some card company! Fab!
