Happy Happy With Rockabilly

Hi everyone I wanted to post this "yesterday" But Blogger was not acting nice to me at all.. :0). Goes with out mention what my "favorite" stamp line is.. YES it's The Greeting Farm. and by far my favorite collection from them is the "Cheeky Collection". These little pin-up inspired cuties are just "the business". As with many of my GF stamps. I just could not bring my self to color them up right away. (please I say again that my nerves do get the best of me sometimes). This is true with "Cheeky Rockabilly" here. I got here quite a while back but never colored her. So this is the first time that she is making an "appearance" on my Blog today. Don't you just love her. She reminds me of those Turner Classic Movies that my mother and I love to watch.
I colored her about 2 weeks ago and at that time I was just kinda of practicing coloring her hair. I wanted to see how good I could get with having her go "black". When I colored her with my Prisma Pencils I only used my pencils and NO OMS. (again because it was just practice ;0) But when I was finished I kinda liked how she turned out.. So I left her hair as is, and then went in with my "Warm Gray 50 % and just added a few shadow to her outfit. Just to really give her an "old Black and White feeling". and so when I was finished I just left her like that. I thought I would just put her with my other "sketches' that I have to remind me of the colors and technique that I used for my  images.
Then I saw that on the "Farm Fresh Blog" WOW( Which One Wednesday) was a color challenge with "Black & White with a splash of color". Soo of course I pulled her out and came up with my card for today.
( I really wanted to use the sketch from this week's Mojo Monday I went with the "square" card.)

What goes better with black and white... RED!! I have this DP from the 'june bug" collection from Basic Grey. and knew right away that it would be perfect for my card, and with the added little color splash it really makes my red just POP. Ribbon was from my stash. I added some bling swirls from Michael's, my prima flower and sentiment is from a "studio g" stamp set that I have.
