Cherrie Joins A Few Challenges!

I won the adorable "Valentine Cherrie Tag" Stamp as a candy on Kylie's blog (thanks Kylie!). I couldn't wait to ink it up! So this week I'm joining in a few challenges: the Tickled Pink Stamps challenge # 5 (punches); the All That Scraps Challenge (Anything Goes); and Bizzy Becs Store Blog Challenge (A Sketch).
I've tried a black and white colouring on Kraft cardstock (see here for a video by the amazing Jen Shults). I still need more practice - but you have to start somewhere. I didnt add the white as I liked it how it was and didnt want to muck it up!!
Stamps :  Valentine Cherrie Tag (Tickled Pink Stamps)
Cardstock & Papers : black, cherry cobbler, crumb cake, Love Letter DSP (Stampin' Up!)
Inks:   soft suede (Stampin' Up!), tuxedo black (memento), prismacolor pencils
Other :  antique brad, crotchet trim (Stampin' Up!), peony petals and angel wing Doohickey's dies (Magnolia), pearl stems (Bizzy Becs), lace doily (stash), doily lace edge punch (Martha Stewart), adage ticket (Tim Holtz)
