Sweet Tilda in Black and White

Good evening peeps!
Wow can you believe it 2 posts in 2 days. The reason being I should have been preparing for a workshop today but instead just got carried away playing with scrummy stuff in the shop oops! Looks like tomorrow could be a late one for me as the workshop is on Wednesday.

Anyway I just couldn't not enter the challenge over at Magnolia Down Under as I love colouring in Black and White so thats enough justification for me.
Ok so I used the beautiful 'Sweet Tilda' from Magnolia who is still one of my very favourite little cuties. As always I used my trusty Promarkers but this time limited myself to just the Cool Grey collection. The fab sketch came from Just Magnolia and was such a joy to use.
Everything was distressed with Pumice Stone and spritzed with Pearl Glimmer mist and edged with Stardust Stickles.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Magnolia Down Under - #129 'Black and White Image'
Just Magnolia - #139 Sketch
Passion for Promarkers - #131 'Inspired by a Song' (my song is 'Shades of Grey' by The Monkees)
I Love Promarkers - #99 'Cute and Cuddly'
Paper Sundaes - 2 Birthday ' Pick Your Favourite Past Paper Sundaes Challenge' (I have chosen the Magnolia challenge of Coarse!)
Charisma Cardz - #1 'Happy Birthday'

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting!

  2. oh Clare, this is so gorgeous. The momo colour is fab. I had problems leaving you a comment last time but your footballer card and your notebooks were equally as good. Glad to see your back blogging regularly and hope everything is ok with you all
