Little Gretel - Simon Says Stamp DT

 Hello peeps,
I had a little potter in my garden yesterday & it was so nice to be out in the fresh air & not squelching in mud :) I could have done without Jester's "help" though especially as he has a bit of a thing for my marigolds & having a mad Springer Spaniel jumping up trying to grab the gloves off your hands doesn't make for a very productive gardening session lol.

Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is Simon Says -
BLACK & WHITE WITH A SPLASH OF COLOUR

My lovely teamies and I are featuring some gorgeous CC Designs products on our cards this week, I love these little pixies and did add a new one to my cart when having my last DT spend but got drawn to using my favourite sweet little Gretel instead.
I am not usually a yellow girl but I a have decided that I am going to tackle trying a few different styles and colours this year so yellow is what I've used as my splash of colour as I love this colour combo & is a nice change from my usual black, white & pink!
The Copic Colours I've used are -
skin - C1, C0, C00, + C3 for cheeks, hair - C9, C7, C5, wings, dress & boots - C3, C1, C00, top - C5, C3, C1

  19. Love your idea to keep the stamped image black and white and use the color for the embellies! And this buttery shade of yellow is wonderful; you should use it more often, Mandy!
