Good morning, peeps! The Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge this week is Black and White. Although you're allowed to use a small amount of one other colour if you need to and I did think about it, the lady on my card is wearing a white gardenia in her hair rather than a red rose - really, decisions, decisions!! Anyhoo, I followed the current Friday Sketchers sketch for this project and I'll also be entering it in that challenge. The central shape is cut from a Nestie and the image is coloured with Copics - warm greys for her dress and cool greys for her hair and the white bits of her gown and fan. I didn't feel the dress really looked black though until I deepened the shadows with a black Prisma pencil. The distressing around the image is done with Weathered Wood Distress Ink. The DPs are from a Papermania Capsule Collection pad and the ribbon was from my stash. The pearls and pearl brad were from The Hobby House. It was really a simple card to put together but I do think that monochrome is always so effective, don't you? Have a great rest of the day and until I 'see' you again.
I'm an addicted crafter who enjoys all forms of craft but I mainly spend what time and money I have on card making. A sixty something year old Mum of two and Granny to six. Married for the second time around to Brian, my teenage sweetheart and living very happily in West Yorkshire, UK where I settled eight years ago.
I'm also an Accredited Crafter's Companion Demonstrator. Please contact me for further info.
