Anything Goes- Back to Black!

Hello my crafty friends! I hope you had a fun weekend. Well another fortnight has rushed past and we are now onto another new challenge over at Anything Goes! This week's challenge is, as Amy Winehouse said, "Back to black". We want you to make a project using black and one other colour! I had loadsa fun with this challenge so can't wait to see what you come up with.

I used one of my fav Uptown Girls- Victoria and Juliet's Night Out. I love that these are such large stamps. I coloured them with copics, paper pieced their dresses (aren't they pretty?!) and added glitter to the hems and a wee bit to their drinks. These gorgeous papers are MME Blush bought from The Craft Den. Sentiment accompanies the main stamp.

I'd like to enter this into:
MIM- anything goes!
Addicted to Stamps- black, white and ? (pink!)
Let's Ink It Up- bling (glitter, bling gems)
Robyn's Fetish- paper piecing
Squirrel and Fox- one for the girls
2 Sisters- girly
Crafty mess- pink n cute
Creations by Gill- stripes and spots

Close up! But do click on the images for a better look, they look bestest up real close!!! 

I love their lonnnnnnng legs! Being only 5ft 1, I wish I had legs like that!!
