Mo Manning Challenge - Shades of Grey

Hi again everyone, I hope you are well, we picked our little woman up and bless her heart she is exhausted but had a fantastic time! I am so pleased:O) I really did feel so panicked that she had gone away gawd help me when it is for longer than one night!. We have our name for our ickle bean we have decided on "Ella" so lets hope they were right when they said a girl! lol, 3 weeks and counting!!!


Here is my card for the challenge over on Mo Manning this week the theme is "Shades of Grey" and the dt cards are stunners!

I used this gorgeous little man, and promarkers cool grey 1-5 to colour him, the rest is just odd scraps of bits and pieces I had, I used some grey pearls, and stamped the wording stamp then punched sizzix hearts from it. I was so pleased with my colouring on the image as I didnt think I would get it to work, the piccy isnt the greatest sorry!, although it looks like I have just made it a black and white lol. Throughly enjoyed using all Grey and will most deffo be doing this again.

Thanks for stopping by and looking :O) xxx
