B&W Happiness

This week's challenge over at MarkerPop is Black and White/Sepia.  When I saw the theme, I wasn't too excited.  I've never colored just black and white or sepia and it was never really something I wanted to do, but I was up for the challenge.  I stamped some images, grabbed my Copics and plopped in front of the TV.  I colored some with my C Copics and some with my Ws ending up with 4 images that I was pretty happy with!  

When it came time to putting the card together, I decided to use the sketch from this month's Some Odd Girl Challenge.  But as I was putting it all together, I realized my images were too large for the sketch, so I printed out a digi image of Dancin' Mae and sized her so she'd fit just right :)

And here she is!

And she does make me happy :D  I love the image.  I love how the B&W looks.  I love the background paper.  It all just makes me happy.  Here's a close up of Miss Mae in all of her glory - 

And the challenges she'll be playing in -
