Tres Chic

This weeks Timeless Tuesday Challenge is to use Black Accents.  Well, I thought that called for a "chic" kind of card (especially after seeing those sneak peeks - Ooooo, that set is calling my name already!!).  I started with black cardstock and layered on paper from Spring Jubilee ( Pink Paislee).  Then I die cut the Eiffel Tower piece and the corner pieces from black cardstock with Spellbinders French Frills set, and adhered them to the background.  I stamped the shoe from Flourishes Feminine Charm stamp set with Memento ink onto blending card, coloured it with copics and die cut it with Spellbinders Standard Circles.  Then I die cut pink cardstock with Spellbinders Lacey Circles and adhered that to the image piece.  I finished by adding a black stitched ribbon and bow and put the image piece on with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were: R81, R83, R85, C1, C3, C5, C7.

Thanks so much for visiting!
