Passion for Promarkers #137–DT card

Here I am again with a late post but at least I’m actually posting a card this week lol!  Better late than never I suppose.  I hope you’ve all had a good start to the week so far, mine’s been ok, very busy in work but at least the first two days have flown by!  I’m here to share my DT card for this week’s passion for promarkers challenge and this week the lovely Nic has set the theme and she has chosen “black & white”.  However we only want to see the colours black and white apart from skin, hair/fur etc. and obviously you have to use your Letraset pens.  Here is my card:

PFP challenge 137 - black & white

I have to say I’m really chuffed with how this card turned out.  The image is from Tickled Pink stamps and I coloured him with all the grey promarkers (his hair is actually using warm grey promarkers but it looks a bit brown in the photo).  I made this card for my nephew who is 23 tomorrow so I didn’t “fuss” it too much.  I added 3 card candi, a button and some twine and that was it.  The papers are a mixture but I think they work quite well together.  The card is A5 in size.

Our sponsor this week is Tickled Pink stamps (who kindly gave all the DT an image to use on our cards this week) and they are offering one lucky winner 2 digi images of their choice.
