B&W card

I love this black & white look using shades of gray.  You will see this look often from me now that I know how to do it and I need all the coloring practice I can get anyway.

The sky is the limit

I colored the balloons with Copic Markers in W1, W3,  W5 and W7 and they coordinate perfectly with PTI’s Smokey Shadow and Soft Stone cardstock.

Short and sweet post today.  It’s Friday and I need to figure out a fun activity for the kids today.  We’ll probably end up at the pool or the lake since school starts in about a week. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Annie

Supplies not mentioned:  Up, Up and Away stamp set, Polka Dot Basics stamp set, Pure Poppy cardstock, pure poppy buttons, cloud die (Papertrey Ink). Colorbox chalk ink in Charcoal, Versamark ink. Scallop rectangle nestabilities were used to make the scallop border under the sentiment.
