I was inspired by Kim Costello's tutorial in the June issue of Craft Stamper magazine, to try colouring an image in black and white.
Now, as you know, I love my promarkers but I've never tried using just my greys to colour an image. I don't have all the greys, just a couple of ice greys but I do also have all 5 of the warm greys, so I tried it with them.
I chose the Daisy stamp from Sugar Nellie because I'm used to colouring her and am fairly confident I know where I'm putting the light and shadow on her. And because she is my all time favourite.
So I'll stop blethering now and just show you the card eh?
