Nostalgic Black & White

This freebie image is from A Day for Daisies.  I selected a black and white setting for it, with a bit of color on the image.  Trends:  an old trend - Swiss Dots (Cuttlebug embossing folder) - I jumped on that trend early and have not looked back!  A new trend - Shape 'n Tape - this by Lifestyle crafts.  I recently got several sheets - I have not used it until today - I am sure I will use it a lot for strips like these - time will tell if I will make good use of the supply I acquired.  I also plan to use it for some delicate die cuts that are hard to glue.  I used pieces for the bg layers, and chalk pencils to color - with a bit of glitter pen for the leaves.
EDIT:  IRL her hat is grey and her face is flesh colored  - same as the hands- sorry this looks so bad on the screen!
