Black, white and red

Happy First Saturday of a New Year!

New day, new year, 
New challenge over on the 

This week, it is:
HIMCR #232 Black & White + 1
And our sponsor this week is the ever

The giveaway is
  $5 gift certificate!

The Design team were given some images to choose
from, and I choose a cute little fella!

Then, it was deciding which colors to use.
And what medium.
oye--decisions, decisions!
I decided on watercolors--a personal favorite.
With the advice of my trusty sidekick, 
it was decided that I should use red as my other color.
So, without further adieu, 
here is my project for this week:

As you can see. I cheated a bit.
I added a tad of green.
(shhhh! don't say anytthing....!) ;)

What I love about watercolors is that I can control
the intensity of the color.
So, red can be bright, or soft, or even pink.
I used my Derwent watercolor pencils--adore them!

Papers are from Studio Calico Seven Paper-Amelia line.
The red cardstock is from Core-dinations, which
was also embossed with a WRMK embossing folder.
The loopy paper tape is from Basic Grey.
The wood button/nickel is from Jillibean Soup.
I added a bit of Stickle glitter glue to the flowers and buttons.

And there you have it folks!
I hope you can play along!
You have until next Friday to link up your projects!
Until next time, mes amies, 
Be safe. Get crafty.
