Black and White



Hello! I was playing around with some of my new stamps that arrived last week and decided I wanted to do this image in black and white, and just a little bit of color. I thought this image from Ching-Chou Kuik, called Poppy, from the Mist would be the perfect image to try a black and white color palette. Everything except her eyes and the flowers were colored with the colors from the C series of grays. It was a little challenging to limit myself to only grays for everything, but I was pretty happy with the results.

Image is from Sweet Pea Stamps, colored with Copic markers, paper from The Paper Studio, Fiskars border punch, ribbon and flowers from my stash.

Thanks for dropping by today!
