Not Quite Black And White.

Evening all,back for my second post of the day,please scroll down for my earlier post.The challenge at Southern Girls for this fortnight is Black and White with a Splash of Colour and how I love this card!

For my DT card I used a digi by Pink Cat Studio,one of this challenge sponsors,check out the challenge blog for details of the other sponsors. I coloured the image using Copics,added glossy accents to the eye and rolled a flower from purple felt. It doesn't show up too well in the photo but I also added an embossed edge to the inside edge of the card


I then added doodling around the image using a black fine liner before matting it on to black. I also added white doodling around the black punched flower before adding the 2 buttons to the centre and a fine black line around the edges and sentiment.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
Creative Card Crew,Best foot forward,
CCH79,Embossing,
KBCute 24,Anything digi,
MIM49,Anything goes,
Birthday Sundaes 21,Use a sentiment,
CYDA26,Birthday.
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x
