Poinsettia Card

I was inspired to play along with the challenge at Merry Monday this week - they are challenging us to use black and white (grey and silver) cards:

I have been wanting to play around with Copic colouring in grey tones so this seemed like the perfect opportunity. I used a poinsettia stamp from Penny Black - I stamped it using SSS Fog ink to do a type of no-line colouring and then used the (N) Copic markers to shade it. I used a Prismacolor grey pencil to add the vein details back to the petals.

I finished off the card with a strip of adhesive tape covered in some American Crafts pewter glitter and a Lawn Fawn sentiment.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
