Monochrome Magician !

This is my card for the following challenges:

The main image is a TandaStamps stamp that I've stamped with black Memento ink and shaded with ProMarkers. The checked pieces are also made with ProMarkers and I've blended Slate Adirondack ink around them and the main image, which is cut out with Labels 4 Nestabilities. The background is white cardstock which I've blended Slate Adirondack over and then stamped the Crafty Individuals swirl with the same ink.

The sentiment is from another TandaStamps set. The largest star is an EK Success flower punch and I've cut off the curved edges to turn it into a star. The two smaller stars were cut on my Cricut machine. I've blended Slate ink over the stars then drawn the swirls and highlighted them with a white Inkssentials pen. I've added some gems to the cloak and a dot of white Liquid Pearls to the top of the staff.

Right just time to watch an epsiode of Stargate Atlantis !

Thanks for looking

  5. Sue your colouring is perfect! I wish icould do what you do with Promarkers. Do you use a blending pen? I have tried but i just seem to erase the colour rather than merge.
    Love the monochrome
