DV #139 Monochrome

Our challenge today at Dream Valley is monochrome. You could, of course, go down the black and white route, or as I have done, just shades of one colour.

We are sponsored by Crafty Ribbons.

DV 139 Monochrome

I have used Stampendous’ The Look, which also comes with a feather, which I have used and a rose, plus a stencil.

I stamped the face and then masked it off before stamping the Justrite script background with Forget Me Not Archival ink. I coloured the face in with Neocolor II watercolour crayons. I stamped the feather twice onto the first of the background papers that I used, in the same Archival ink I used for the script stamp. My papers are from NRN and K & Co. I distressed all my edges and then inked them with the Forget Me Not inkpad. I used Glossy Accents on her lips, and Spectrum Noir sparkle in clear over her eye makeup. A flower and small pearl/crystal spray finished it off.

The glossy accents and sparkle show up better in the pic below.
