Black and white coloring

Good morning! It's Friday. Yay! :D Just a little bit longer and we can relax and enjoy the weekend. :)

Today I have a card to show you. Yes, I made a card after all those paper bags. ;) Sugar Nellie is having a DT call and I thought and I'd give it a shot and apply. 

Here's what I made.

I love Maja design papers, but unfortunately they are not available here. But I was lucky enough to receive some from my sweet friend (thank you so much girl!! xx) They were so pretty I even didn't want to use them at first - I know, I'm terrible. lol But when I decided I would make a card with the sweet Victoria image from Sugar Nellie I knew these papers would go perfectly with this image - to create a sweet, elegant and shabby chic card. 

It's the first time I tried black and white coloring and I really like the look. This image is great for this technique (especially for newbies like myself lol), because there's already quite a lot of shading done; I just did a bit more with my black and grey Faber Castell pencils.

I used lots of different embellishments on this card. As I said, I was going for a romantic, shabby chic look, so I used lots of lace, doilies and flowers. They all came from my stash. 

Well, that's it. I was really happy with how this card turned out. I hope you like it too! :)

Don't forget to apply for the Sugar Nellie DT if you like their images. :)

Big crafty hugs! xx
