Charisma Cardz Challenge #4

The challenge this week over on Charisma Cardz was set by Vee and it is to use 'Black, white and one other colour of your choice'. I really enjoyed this and my one other colour I chose was 'Pink'.

I've used 'Whisper Fairies - Flower' for the image. She has been coloured using copics and sakura stardust pink and clear, using a waterbrush. This is the first time I've waterbrushed the sakura pens, but I must thank Poppet for her fab tutorial on how she does some of her colouring, and this was one of her techniques. I waterbrushed her wings, legs, the white areas of her skirt, flower and the edge of the image, unfortunately none of the sparkle can be seen in the pic, but I really loved the softness of the sparkle by applying it in this way and will definately be playing with this technique lots more, thanks Pops xx. So not to add another colour I didn't colour her skin and left white with just a touch of pink to her cheeks. Inked the edges in black and used a corner punch to round the corners. The black, white and pink patterned paper is from Kanban and the other paper is from my scraps stash. Added two fabric flowers with large pink gem brads (from the Range) through the centre and waterbrushed a touch of the clear sakura stardust to the black petals. To finish I've added some tiny black gems and flat pearls to three of the corners and then a line along the edge of the paper below the image. I've left it sentiment free, so it can be used for a number of occassions.
