Not everything is black and white ….x

Good morning, where oh where is the sunshine!!!!! I thought when I woke up this morning that it was going to be lovely but the clouds are building up again. Probably more thunder later on again! I was checking through my camera when I spotted this card I made a couple of weeks ago for Crafter’s Companion. It was for the launch of the Spectrum Noir Pens …. have you got yours yet???

Anyway, I realised that I have not posted it here on my blog. How forgetful!!! It has been everywhere else though – on Facebook, on the Crafter’s Companion News blog and even on Create and Craft but not on my own little space!


Now this was a challenge, the powers that be had asked me to make a card only using the warm grey Spectrum Noir  pens …… rather proud of this one if I am honest, it turned out much better than I hoped!


I had originally used a grey rhinestone for the flower centre but then I thought I would like just a tiny accent of colour so it was then changed for this pretty pink pearl. I then ummed and ahhed if it was the right thing to do but left it with the pink.

The image is one of the beautiful SWALK stamps – probably one of my favourites …… ‘With Sympathy’ and the papers were printed from the SWALK papercrafting CD-Rom using the colouriser to make it black and white.


Secret Crafter – Black & White only

That’s it for now ….. off to do a little bit of crafting … what else!!
Pop back tomorrow for some very BIG news …… been itching to tell you all xxxxxxxxxxxx
