Challenge 17 at Karens Doodles Black White and one other colour

Good Morning ladies I hope you are all well. Firstly I would like to apologise for my lack of posting recently life seems to have taken over recently and I have only managed my challenge cards and my Brothers wedding invitations (which are coming along really well) I hope to be making some more very soon though as I have enquired about doing a craft fair in September/October so need to get some cards ready plus I am hoping to get some cards to woodgreen animal shelters again this year for them to sell as they made a lot of money from them last year (all money made was kept by woodgreen)

The challenge this week is Black White and one other colour I have chosen to use black white and red which I think is going to be a popular choice :)

I have used the 'Amanda Panda' image from the site I love this one to bits and have coloured it differently every time I have used it. This time though I coloured it after watching a tutorial by Suzzane Dean and I really think that there is an improvement here (the colours are actually darker in real life but I couldn't get the right light on the photo. Am going to have to invest in a light box I think.

The colours I have used are as follows; 
Blacks - C7, C5, C3, C1 
Reds - R59, R46, R37, R35

The papers I have had since i first started crafting all those years ago and are ivory black creative tones by Papermania. The buttons are from some of my clothes (the spare ones ) and the little red dots were given to me as a gift 

I really enjoyed making this card i think just having the one colour with the black and white is ver effective, I plan on using this colour scheme for some of my christmas cards I think it would look great and Karen has some gorgeous Christmas images in her store

I hope you have enjoyed my card this week can't wait to see what you guys create, don't forget we have 3 prizes up for grabs so get crafting :)
