House of Gilli DT - Black and One Other Color

Well, it is my turn to share my card for our challenge over at House of Gilli, Black plus One Other Color. I chose to go with Black and Cream. LOVE the simple color combo, and how this card turned out.
I used October Afternoon Thrift Shop papers, as they are so vintage and gorgeous, I just LOVE them!!! I paired them up with Jeans Gilli, which looks to be in stock over at Stamping Scrapping, so pop on over and pick one up for yourself. Doesn't she look great with these papers and colors? Just love her!
I colored Gilli with Copics.
Skin - E000, E00, R20
Hair - E99, E97, Y21, Y11
Pants - C9, C7, C5, C3
Shirt and Shoes - E40, E41, E42, E43, E44
Shadow - B0000, W00, W1
I added some Doohickey Dies and flowers for added embellishment. I used the Doohickey swirl and leaf die and punched them out in black cardstock for embellishing the flower arrangement. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. I used white Gardenia which I sprayed with Black Gold Glimmer Mist, and two white 25mm roses, which I sprayed with Walnut Gold Glimmer mist.
I hope you will pop on over to Stamping Scrapping and pick up a Gilli stamp for yourself, then come on over to the House of Gilli and join us for our fun bi-weekly challenges!
