*Vera Lane Studio: ATC Black and White with a pop of colour

Hello Crafty Friends!

I'm just back from a few days spent in the lovely Gibralta sunshine. We had a lovely time, resting and relaxing in-between exploring the Nature Reserve on The Rock and meeting the wild Barbary Apes.

Today I'm sharing an ATC I made for the May swap at Vera Lane Studio Facebook Group. Stephanie is hosting the swap and the theme is Black and White with a POP of colour.

I coloured the girl (February set) and flowers (Blooms set) using markers and pencils in various shades of grey. My pop of colour was crimson. I used white gel pen to add a few highlights and a blender pen to soften the colours on the edges of the blooms.  My little girl was fussy cut leaving a white border and then matted onto black card to make her pop from the background.
The background of the ATC is made from fabric tape and washi tape. The girl was added on foam pads and the blooms were shaped to give them some dimension and then added on foam pads. The sentiment is from the Fairy House set and was glued directly onto the background. The edges of the ATC were inked with a blender and black ink.
