Monochrome Colouring xx

Hello all

Well what happened to that sun yesterday??? Just as I was saying to you all was beautiful here the skies turned grey and exploded with rain and hail! Typical Scottish weather I suppose!

I wanted to share a wee Die'sire Design Team project with you today, as I've been practising with the Spectrum Noirs and really need all you lovely peeps advice!

So I took a one of my Hannah Lynn Digis and coloured her to my best ability with the Spectrum Noirs
This was my 3rd attempt but I was happy with it (as I could be), I only find the skin tones a struggle but the colouring itself was easy! Thats from a PROMARKER lover too!

Here's my finished card

I used the stunning Die'sire Cloud Embossing Folder which I inked a bit with a silver metallic ink that I've had in my stash for a while! The flowers are the delish quilling dies Die'sire Sunflower Small and Sunflower Large and the Leaf 2 die before finishing the flowers with some ink and card candi. I used  DCWV Papers that I had in my stash and the sentiment is from the freebie with this months Crafters Inspiration mag!

I would like to enter these Challenges
Just Inspirational - Embossing
Crafting Musketeers - Monochrome
pile it on - Feminine
The Cutie Pie Challenge - Cute with Dies and Punches
Bunny Zoe's - Monochrome

So what have you all been doing? Getting set for the school holidays are just indulging in the hot weather? We enjoyed a wee BBQ tonight, but I tell you mu hubby can eat a lot! Not that you would think that looking at him! A burger, 7 sausages, half rack of ribs, salad stuff then a quarter pineapple grilled on the BBQ too!! Where as I had a burger, salad things and the pineapple! Typical man heeeee

Tonight I thought I'd share some of the projects I made in the past months, as I sit here in the garden with my second Jeremiah Weed! Its sooooo tasty and easy to drink lol
