Black Red Beauty & Candy Reminder

The challenge on Magnolia vs Stampavie is a color challenge....Red, Black White and Grey. At first I really was unhappy doing this challenge but in the end I really like this card. The DP are from My Mind's Eye. The dots were actually all white so I took my fine tip marker and added a black circle inside each white circle. I really like how this added that punch to the design. I also used Spellbinder's Doodle die in both red and black to embellish the card. The red flower is a Prima flower and the black flower was made using a Marvy punch with a black brad holding it all together.
I used my Black Soot Distress ink and the Fired Brick Distress inks to color the clothing. I used my water painter pen to add the distress inks. This is my first time coloring with distress inks so any hints on how to color with them would be appreciated. I made the bow using sheer simmer ribbon.

The inside shows the other DP much better. The sentiment would have to be added with white ink. I wanted to remind all readers that I will be drawing for the blog candy on April 1st so make sure you have left a comment Here . Have a wonderful day. Our day is full of snow again! Can you was cancelled again today and we are in the middle of a huge Winter storm.
