Today's challenge over on Sharon Johnson's (notimetostamp) Blog is Black Ink Only.
That's right ... this means NO COLORING of any sort - no markers, no pencils, no chalks, no inks - just black ink only. NO other restrictions ... anything else goes!
I thought this was going to be difficult for me ... but it was actually quite easy and totally FUN!! Only yesterday I received this adorable Sugar Nellie image called "Reflective" in the mail and could not wait to ink it up! NO ... I DIDN'T CHEAT! Her britches are paper pieced as is the patch on her sleeve elbow from a scrap I had on my worktable. I used Versafine Black ink on Whisper White cardstock for my image, and diecut using Nestabilities rectangles. In the corners I used a Creative Memories round tip black marker just to add the dots. My sentiment is by Versus Rubber Stamps and is matted in a blue teal scrap I had laying on my worktable. The blue teal satin ribbon is by Offray. The only other embellishment is the Prima flower and Hero Arts gem I put in her hair.
I am really thrilled with the outcome ... what do you think?? Thanks Sharon for a fun challenge ... I can always depend on you to make me "think out of the box!" Thanks for stopping by today ... please come back again. Have a happy day!!
