Thinking of you


This is my second post for today. Please scroll down for a vintage card and scroll up to enter my candy.

I've tried something new on this card, using different shades of grey only on the image. It just shows what a contrast you get with using ice greys, cool greys and warm greys, Promarkers of course, I've used DI Iced Spruce around the edges. I wanted to contrast that with a lovely warm colour. Not sure which pad the orange paper came from, the flowered paper is from the V&A pad. The flowers are from Michaels, some of these in my candy along with a larger version of this cute stamp, Lazy Ellie, from Stamposaurus.Tag sentiment from Craftwork Cards.

Good morning Marianne,

What a fabulous piece of artwork, I would never have thought of keeping the image in the tones of grey and combining the beautifully vibrant DP's, but it works wonderfully will stop

Thank you so much for sharing with us at Penny Black and More this month.
