Morning all :) Hope everyone is bright and breezy today and having a good weekend.
This is my latest card: I wanted to do an image in monochrome after I saw it on a blog challenge a few weeks ago, it's something I'd never done and as I want to improve my colouring I thought I'd bite the bullet and have a go. It made me nervous, but I'm quite pleased with the results, and in the end I found it easier than using many colours. I used pencils again on this card, 2 shades of warm grey plus black, and aged and distressed the background and added some handstitching, lace and flowers. I used off-cuts of papers as I felt that suited the style of the image: she has patches on her apron of a circle pattern and a stripe, so that's mirrored in the paper scraps I chose.
The image was donated, so if anyone knows the make and name of it, let me know what it is, she was lovely to 'colour' and I wouldn't mind using it again.
