It's all black and white over at Dottie's World!

It's Sunday, it's time for a new challenge over at Dottie's World!
Here is Gunn's challenge:
"I want you to make a card that goes in black and white. You can use all shades of black and white. Skin tones are allowed on skin....Elements are great on cards- charms, flowers or what ever you like. On these elements I want you to have ONE other color, just to make an contrast to the black and white. You don`t need to have this color on all the elements, but one should have the color you choose.Of course, remember to include Charmed downloads. Have fun and play along!"
I struggled to find papers that would suit this challenge but eventually I decided on a Junkitz paper that looked quite "dreamy!" Thought it worked OK!
I did cheat a bit and as well as the red I used a little bit of green for the leaves and eyes...but it was green grey! This is the first time I have attempted "black" hair so please be gentle!

Be gentle? The hair is absolutely spiffin', as is all your colouring! One of my customers wrote to me to ask why no-one ever made eyes green, she had green eyes and felt excluded - she will be pleased to see your card today :-)
Lovely work as always Adele, I love the more dramatic shades with the black & white.

I love this card. The water Lilly Pixie are stunning in black and white, it suits her. I think the hair is perfect colored.
Cheating....don`t understand what you mean... lol.
The read you used as the one color make this pixie pop in a way. your eyes are drawn to her, and one wants to take another look at her.
Hugs Gunn :-D
