50 Shades....

I decided to try a couple of new things this weekend.
Firstly I coloured my image using only shades of Grey, I used an image by Saturated Canary which very appropriately is called 'Grey Tie'

I also tried to do the no line technique, although I don't think I faded the lines enough in word, even so, I still found it one of the most challenging projects I have done so far and it also the longest time I have spent colouring an image.

I hope you like the results.

I used Promarkers Cool Grey 1 - 5  & Black, also Ice Grey 4 & 5 for the Tie/Panties - I couldn't resist adding a little China Blue for her eyes :)

I layered the image on some glittery silver card - both cut with Spellbinders Grand Scallop Ovals and added some flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts a tiny heart hat pin and some flat backed pearls around the edge of the scalloped die.
