Monochrome Magic

Hi Everyone,

Well what a weekend, We got all the way to the Great British Craft Festival on Saturday only to be sent home as they had stopped letting people in. I was fuming as I had sat in traffic for hours only to drive home again without even setting foot in the door. They had over sold tickets and messed up so badly. I will no way be going to an event organised by Create and Craft and HunkyDory again. Anyway rant over I have a couple of cards to share with you tonight so here is the first:

I have used my new image from Mos Digital Pencil and tried something a little different with it. I have coloured it with watercolour pencils and gone for a monochrome colour theme. This is only the second time I have used watercolour pencils and it is the first time I have tried an all black and white image. I am really pleased with the outcome. The designer papers are from Dovecrafts and the other cards and papers are from my stash. I have added a bit of black glitter and little gems to the fairies breath and some gems to the circle. I used a metal sentiment with a black bow and finished off with candi and some larger gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Papertake Weekly - Spots N Stripes
Sassy Cheryl - Fav colour combo - you can't go wrong with Black and White

    I am so sorry to hear of your wasted journey and wasted day. It is so sad when a planed special day out is ruined by their bad management. I hope you will be writing to them.
