It's Black and White!!!





It's a card making marathon at our place today, Narny and I spent a nice afternoon creating and the littlies endured my "no electronics day today" better than I thought they would.
Anyway, this sketch is from Moving along with the Times, DP is BG Ambrosia lightly distressed. Tiddly inks have a match it up challenge this week, so I copic coloured this gothic looking image to match the DP, flowers are Wild Orchid, lace and brads are random and all these are lightly stickled, buttons are recycled, sentiment is from can't remember where. I have also followed challenges from:
Townscrapper - Anything Goes (I am sure my grey skin falls into that category of anything goes)
Digi Doodles - Use Scraps - (DP is leftovers - not really a black DP kinda girl so had alot left, lace is a offcut, buttons are odds from my Aunt's late Aunt...phew)
Burtonesque Dolls - Black and White
Colour Me Copic - Black and White/follow technique (I sat with the laptop next to me so I could follow the black colouring technique as shown - I have all even numbered copics so had to improvise)

Thats all from me tonight, tomorrow I will show you Narny's creation.

  20. Admittingly your colouring is pretty decent. But the buttons or brads (the things on your pic) dont really do it for me. The ones on the left dont quite match up but they are on the right side. so its a start. I also would have liked to have seen the lace stuff to mount the "happy birthday" quote also cause everything looks rustic and old bar that one part. Hope this helps
