Psst Dani and Taylor

I think by now most of you will know that I love monotones, so I set to Designing with this image from Mo Manning at Digital Pencil, I coloured the image using the Promarkers Ice Greys 1-5.
The swirly diecut is a Bigz Die - Decorative Accent w/Flower , the flower itself I explain further down the posting how to make it.
I finished with a couple of ribbons, one sheer white and a black gingham on top.


Attention to Detail...

A close up view as I wanted to show you the shadow under the girls boots.


The flower was made using punched card circles, distressing the edges then scrunching them up, next unfold them and add a brad to the centre.
