Greyscale Dragon Dreams!

Hi Everyone

Hope you are all settling in to the swing of 2015.  Christmas seems like an age away already!  I decided I would like this year to try some new things out and one of them was having a go at colouring in Monochrome.  Nervous is the word I will use to describe how I felt before I started but I am pretty pleased with the end result.  The Image is a Delicious Doodles Image and is called Dragon Dreams.  I have previously coloured this image in greens and thought it would be a good image to do my first Monochrome colouring with as its a Darker Image.  I coloured her using Promarkers.  All the Ice Grey Colours and a touch of Black.  As this is for a Friends Boyfriend  I wanted to keep the Easel Card layout fairly CAS and she doesn't really look like a Flourish and Flowers type of girl!  I used a Black Bazzil Basics as my Base/Frame Layer and then added White and Polka Dot Card too.  I used Precious Hearts Die from Memory Box, cut these in Black and White and then glued them onto the White Ribbon Border.  I Hand Stamped both the Sentiments using Tuxedo Memento Inkpad and to finish added a Black Gem to the Heart Dies.

I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges


I hope that I did a good job of Greyscale Colouring on my first attempt.  I really enjoyed trying something new.  I am hoping to have a go at Sepia Colouring so please look out for that!

Thank you for visitng my blog, please leave me a comment to let me know what you think.  I love reading your comments, they mean alot to me!  Hope you can come back again soon!
