It's all grey here!

Hello blogworld,

So as promised here I am again - did you enjoy the day off from my waffle yesterday?

This time I'm here with my DT card for the new challenge at Divas by Design and this time we would like to see your Monochromatic (part of the definition is 'having, or appearing to have, only one colour') creations.

Our sponsor this week is:

I chose to go with shades of grey to black, accented by white, and this is what I ended up with:

Front shot:

Detail shot of image:

I used:

Digi stamp:
Saturated Canary: Hollywood, but I can't find her in the shop at the mo.  This time I used my Prisma pencils for the dress (I'm absolutely rubbish at colouring black with my Pros!), Promarkers for her hair / skin and chalked for definition on the background.

Dies / Punches:
Circular Nestie

 Die Cuts with a View stack
Swirls - Craftwork cards

Craftwork cards - card blank and sentiment
Pom-pom trim from my stuff

There you go, hope you like what you see!  I'd love to see your creation, why not pop over to the challenge to get more inspiration from my marvellous Teamies and I'll keep an eye out for your entry!


A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: Week #205

Crafty Sentiments Designs: Spots or Stripes
