Monochrome at Crafts & Me

We're havng a monochrome theme over at Crafts & Me for the next fortnight.  For this one I've used a new image which will be released soon which is part of Lemon Shortbreads range of "Melody" stamps.  This one is Flapper Girl 2 and she's just as pretty as 1!  The team are also busy working on samples as Crafts & Me are doing their first show at Stevenage on 6th Feb so do pop over and say hello to Teresa and see her range of stamps including some new ones and see the girls samples in the flesh :)
This one was coloured with promarkers and artist pencils for shading.  I added a bit of a halo with pencils around her and spread out with sansador then distressed around the edges with brilliance ink in red.  Papers are print outs from Bearly Mine, very handy having digital papers as I dont have many red ones so I just print and theyre ready to go :)  Text was stamped with an alphabet set and I've added ickle butterflies from the martha stewart 3 in 1 butterfly punch and whole card finished with a couple of squirts of Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist.  Hope you'll love the new images by Lemon Shortbread, I've seen some of the others too and they're gorgeous!
