Make It Colourful ~ Monochrome




Happy weekend!    We’ve got a new challenge at Zoe’s awesome Make It Colourful challenge blog today!    This week we’re featuring  some of my favorite techniques –  Vintage Photo – Monochrome, Black/White, Sepia – your choice.  

I’ve combined the Lover’s Pavilion  from Make It Crafty with Tiddly Inks’   As You Wish  couple ~ I think they were made for each other. 



How’s that for a romantic card for either Valentine’s Day, an anniversary celebration or even a wedding!?   I think the Lover’s Pavilion would work really well with so many images since it’s a digi and can be scaled to match any character you choose!  

Hope you can stop over at the Make It Colourful challenge blog  to take a peek at the awesome Monochrome projects from the Design Team ~ you’ll also find lots of helpful tips for this technique from Zoe.    

Thanks for stopping by today.   Hope you have a great weekend!
