Today I'm hostess at the Magnolia-licious Inspiration Challenge Blog and have picked a Black & White and/or Monochrome Colour Challenge. It's a tough one for me but I think so elegant that I hope you play along and share your projects with us. The DT has outdone themselves so checkout their fabulous creations!
Here's the picture I chose to provide inspiration.
I've chosen a simple design to spotlight Tilda Goes Shopping and Magnolia's Eiffel Tower (sorry out of stock at the moment). When I think about Paris, I think about all the beautiful things to see, the wonderful food and of course the shopping!! I haven't been yet but when my girls are older, we're going to take a trip to Paris for sure!!
I've used my C (Cool) & W (Warm) gray Copics to colour the images. I don't use my W Copics much but I really like how Tilda's cheeks and top turned out with the Ws. Now I wish I had coloured the Eiffel Tower a bit darker but at the time I was worried it would blend into the DP and Tilda too much. DP is Webster's Pages and although it looks like the paper is yellow and black, IRL it is old white and black so I didn't cheat ~ lol. Pearl Swirl and the black centres on the flowers (whose edges were dabbed with Memento Tuxedo Black) are Prima. Organza ribbon, black pearl heart and other pearls are from my stash.
That's it for today folks! I'll be posting again in a couple of weeks so come on back for a peek.
