And now for something completely different!....

Howdy folks! I'm completely snowed under with unfinished DT projects due to all the decorating but just had to sneak another little something into the crafty mix to test Mr Mojo! I have often admired those folks that make the most stunning black & white cards with fabulous mono colouring and have wanted to give it a go but have always avoided the challenge not sure if I was able to rise to it.
So I challenged myself to an entirely B&W card with my 3 shades of cool grey, 3 shades of warm grey and 1 black pencil and here it is......

I have made this card using the sketch over at the sweet stop this wk and have used the stunning Ebony & Alabaster papers from black market paper society available here although they have been out of stock for a bit so keep checking back (prob cos I keep buying them all!) I really thought this funky Tilda from the new range just suited this style perfectly!

Tilda has been coloured with my 7 different shades in Prisma pencils (must get a bigger set soon!) and I have edged in stazon black ink. My lace and flowers are wild orchids with my ribbon and pearls coming from stash. My sentiment is SU and my fab embossed charm with gem is making memories.

I would also like to enter this into The official magnolia challenge of mono, Meljens black challenge, Card makin mamas happy birthday, Crazy 4 challenges mono colouring and Magnolia stamp lovers flowers challenge.
Thanks to everyone for coming by again, don't forget I still have candy running if you are interested!
Hugs all
