Mini Twins...

Happy Wednesday Everyone!  I hope you're all having a great week so far.  Mine has been a pretty busy one.  Thank you for taking a moment to stop by in your busy day.

We've got a black/white + one challenge going on at Magnolia-licious Highlites right now.  Monday's blog hop was fantastic wasn't it?  I actually made a different card for it initially, but the color didn't turn out quite as I had hoped, so I made another card for the challenge.  Anyway, I decided to show you the first card since the colors really pop and the dp's are gorgeous.

Here it is...

Mini Twins
These little sisters are #3011 Mini Tilda with Staw Hat and #321 Mini Hello Little Butterfly.  You can get them both at Magnolia-licious right now.  I paired them with a combo of dp's from LilyBee Design - 'This & That' and 'Happily Lost' collections.  Both are available at Love To Stamp.  I just love the LilyBee papers.  They have a really great texture and the patterns/colors are so gorgeous.  I have a really easy time combining papers across collections.

The gorgeous thick black ribbon is from American Crafts.  It really brought this card to life.  The little black gems are from my stash.  I cut the image with a SB circle nestie.  All flowers are from WOC.

I colored the images with Copic markers.  As mentioned above, the challenge was black/white + one other color.  I had colored the girls clothes to perfectly match the paper and flowers.  Then, I made the mistake of bringing in a little grey for the shadows and blending.  As I blended, the color changed to more of a purple-ish.  I couldn't leave it like that in the one section, so I continued with it all over.  So, the clothes no longer perfectly match the dp's, but it's not all that bad either.  I still think it's a beautiful card :-)

That's all I have today.  Thank you so much for stopping by :-)

OMG! Simply gorgeous. To be honest I have never been keen on the mini magnolia stamps but after seeing how beautifully you colored them I have changed my mind. They are adorable.
The shade of their clothes is awesome.I love those papers too especially the balck and white one.
