Pop of pink ;)

Today I'm sharing a creation made for Outlawz Sketch using We Are 3 Tones of Gray design papers.  We Are 3 are sponsoring us this month.  To go with the papers I've coloured one of my own images, Faye, in monochrome using Copics.

To add a little interest I've coloured only her wings in pink.  I've fussy cut the image and mounted it onto a die cut circle of the Tones of Gray papers.  The edges of all the design papers have been distressed with a Tonic Solutions tool.  Behind the image is a piece of black card cut with a Spellbinders die.  I've added a little magic label from Tim Holtz.

Here's our sketch for this week

Apart from the We Are 3 design papers I've also used some Studio Light paper to give a fence effect in the background.  To frame the card I've used some black card.  Across the middle of the design papers is a strip of gingham ribbon.

You can probably see the image has been mounted onto a doily to keep with the theme of the sketch.

The piano key ribbon down the left and the hand tied musical noted ribbon I've picked to go with the musical paper design.

Along the bottom I've used a mushroom die from Joy Crafts which I've cut into sections so the image is left clear.

My final touch a few black gems.

Hope you like my inspiration for today and we see you at the challenge
