Feeling Grey?? xx

Good morning all

Hope this finds you all well?? I'm just plodding along getting my work done and trying find time to fit in me time?? Where does the hours go?

I'm back to share my third GDT for Crafts and Me and this time I got to use the Robin Pushay Friends image! Truthfully I wasn't that looking forward to using this image, its not something I would ever pick. So with that in mind I tired a few attempts with nothing great to show, then I was staring at my pens and thought GREY!! I then got all the different grey tones out and had a play


What do you think?? I used a whole range of Grey Spectrum Noirs in different tones, a touch of yellow to highlight the moon. I then masked over the image and using Black Soot Distress Ink blended in the background before added some Sparkle Pen to make the moon pop. It was a bit of luck that it turned out as it did and I'm rather impressed with myself hehehe

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!
