Black and White Sweet Tilda

At first, the thought of coloring using only black and white really scared me, and then the MDUC give this week challenge black/white plus one.... so I give it a try.

I don't have gray copic, so I figure why not using what I have all this time: ordinary school coloring pencils (yup, that's right). Mine came in 3 shades of gray, and I use them all for coloring sweet Tilda.

So without further ado...


Tilda from Raising the Ceiling collection
Cardstock from American Craft and from stash
Flowers are Primas
Ribbon also from stash
Sketch is from Sketch Saturday

This card entered the:
MDUC #46 - Black and White plus one
Sketch Saturday week #105

  3. Love the pencil shading on Tilda. Sweet Tilda is one of my favs too! That colour blue is very striking and I love the way you criss crossed the ribbon and then added the flowers.
    Thanks for joining us at MDUC this week.

  11. Sweet card, Irene - no matter that it was done in pencil. It looks fabulous! I tend to stick to watercolor or regular colored pencils myself -- Copics are expensive. Thanks for sharing!
    Hugs!

  14. Love the grey shades you used on Tilda. Very very beautiful. The blues give such a striking contrast to Tilda. Love your card...I am going to have to try this style.
