My First Black & White Card


Okay, this card was a challenge for me as I had never done a monochromatic card with just greys, with the addition of one color for some punch!!
This dramatic little lady is "Wednesday's Child" from Mo's Digital Pencil and except for the turquoise fur, the entire image was colored with Copic greys - C's, W's and T's.  The image was cut with Spellbinders Label 2, and then layered with black and white cardstock.  It's really hard to tell but the black background of the card was embossed with a Cuttlebug Folder.  A Martha Stewart punch was used as a border on the bottom of the card, as well as an accent inside the card.  I searched through all my stamp and digital sentiments, but couldn't find one that I felt suited the image, so I created my own.  Hope you like it!!
Challenges I am entering this card into:
Mo's Digital Challenge - #91 Black & White with one contrasting color
Birthday Sundaes - #18 Anything Goes Birthday Card
Challenge Up Your Life - #48 Tent Card
Sir Stampalot Challenge - July Anything Goes
