This is my second card as Guest DT for Magnolia Down Under for April. I must admit when I saw this weeks challenge I was horrified! I have never coloured a Tilda in Black & White before! The challenge called older days and is to colour your image in B & W (similiar to an old photo) then use coloured papers and accessories.
So here is my image - I've coloured her using Warm Grey Copics W00, W01, W03, W05 & W07. My only other attempt to colour a tilda using black was to try colouring an image with black hair - what a disaster that was! So I'm pleased with how she turned out. I have cut out the image and embossed with nestabilities rectangular die and used Tim Holtz Distress Ink to give my image that old B & W photo impression.
The papers I've used here are from Kaiser along with some Burgundy and Vanilla Cardstock. I have stitched my pattern paper to the cardstock on the sewing machine and placed a layer of lace and ribbon under the image before poping it up on foam. I've added the heart charm as I've tied the ribbon in a bow. The flowers in the top corner are from Bizzy Bec's and I've used a Carl Leaf Punch to punch some burgundy leaves and added a touch of stickles to them. I then added some tiny pearls to the corners to finish the card.
I'm also going to enter this card the these challenges:-
Well this challenge certainly "challenged" me to get out of my comfort zone. I encourage you all to have a go too! I researched on You-Tube for some tips which were really helpful. I didn't keep the links but simply searched for Magnolia and B & W.
