It’s all black & white after a fashion!


** Please click on the pic for a clearer view 🙂 **

The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Black and White.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

I thought 60’s Fashion by Crafty Sentiments Designs would be perfect for this colour combo especially all coloured up in the style of an old photograph.I even shied away from normal skintones to add to the effect,tho’ I was tempted!She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao Markers and a few white gel pen highlights have been added too.The paper rose started out white and the leaf green but I decided to give them a more dramatic look by changing them with the Black Copic Marker.The ribbon and buttons are from the same collection as the papers.
