Grayscale to Black and White Monochromatic

     I just had to do another AuroraWings sprite for their "Black and White with or without a Pop of Color" challenge.  I enjoyed the one I did last week so much that I browsed through my extensive collection of AW images and found this one which I thought would work perfectly.

     I colored with ProMarkers and watercolors, then cut the image with old decorative scissors.  How many of you still have decorative edge scissors?   Come on, fess up - no crafter ever threw out any tools which still works!

     The black frame is cut with a die from Spellbinders.  Everything is put onto an embossed (Linen folder) white card front.  I printed and added the sentiment after hand cutting it and inking the edges.  I really wanted to leave it fairly simple so I added only the black bow with a tiny pearl.

OOOH, another beauty, Connie! This is the first image I used for the first challenge ever on the AWCB and it's still a fave. Such mesmerizing brown eyes and lovely framing. Your signature bow is icing on the cake. Thanks so much for joining our Challenge #66 (again) at Aurora Wings. xxD

Gorgeous monochromatic design and coloring. Her beautiful brown eyes are mesmerizing. I recognize the decorative edges on your card - still have the same decorative scissors in my drawers! Thank you for the second entry in our Challenge 66 at Aurora Wings, Nana Connie! Mitzi xx
