CCM #108 Black & White

This fortnights challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is hosted by Kim , she has chosen the theme of Black and White.

Black and White will be the only colours allowed, apart from flesh colours for skin and normal hair colours, but no other colours should be visible.

I was lucky enough to get a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and couldn't wait to use it to create a card for this challenge.

I used the 'Autumn Card Wrap' by Samantha Walker from the Silhouette store, which I cut in textured white card.

Then I did a trace and cut around the lovely 'Fairy Tenderhearted' by Tiddly Inks (This took several attempts and a couple of You tube videos, but I was so excited when it worked - lol)

I used all the shades of Cool Grey Pro-markers to colour her and a little black for depth and added some stickles to the flowers in her hair and glossy accents to the egg (not sure you can actually tell in the pic though!)

Finally I mounted her on black card and added a couple of flourishes to finish it off.

Then I had to figure out how to tie it all up without tearing it - lets just say it took a few attempts, still not entirely happy with the bow, but overall I think I have fulfilled the brief.

Don't forget to visit me teamies for some more inspiration and of course there are some lovely prizes on offer from our sponsors this week.
