Going Black and White
Every now and then when my new stamps come in I get all excited and share my new rubber with my family. My Mom and Sister especially love to see what I am creating up in my room so I update them on not only my new supplies but also my newest creations. This past weekend I was showing my mom these super cute Magnolia stamps that I ordered from Dream Cottage (main website for these great stamps) and she loved this particular image, Tilda in France. In fact she looked at it for a while then said this image would look great on a black and white card, do you think that sounds good? I would love to see something.....so I got coloring! I used two greys to create the tones in this image and I think it really works. The greys I used were C1 and C7 from Copics and to be honest it was all I needed, to get darker tones I put layers of ink and the really dark areas I used the C7 for. Hope you like this card as much as I do, my mom issued an amazing challenge, I will have to let you know her thoughts on the final creation!
