My Besties UK- Anything Goes with option Black and White

Good morning everyone. Today I'm sharing my DT card for the new challenge launching at the My Besties UK blog. Our theme is, as always, Anything Goes but with the option Black and White.

For my card, I chose this gorgeous, elegant Sherri Baldy My Bestie image (img031) and teamed it with Trimcraft Dovecraft Monochrome papers.

This gorgeous image is available to purchase here in the Etsy shop.

I finished the card with some daisies made using a Sue Wilson die, a Lelli-Bot Crafts ribbon and some black Scrapberry pearls.

Prior to the challenge I'd never coloured in black and white. I discovered it is quite tricky but I'm pleased with the results. The Spectrum Noir colours I used for the dress and hair were from IG3 to IG8. Her skin is coloured using FS2, FS4 and CR3.

I'd like to enter this card for the following Challenges:
Scrapbook Stamp Society Challenge #74
