Simply Black and White
I thought I would dig out one of my Stamps by Judith stamps that hasn't seen the light of day in a while, and I stamped him with black soot distress ink. I then used the same ink pad and a water brush to add in some shadow. I have to admit, this only takes a few minutes to do, but it's extremely gratifying as you end up with something that looks almost like a pencil drawing - particularyl if you chose a stamp which has a 'sketchy' style as I have done here.
For the little bit of background matting I have used one of my stubbies (I think it is actually a bear paw, but that's just a technicality!!). Finally a bit of matting, a bit of doodling and one card, ready to go......
I am going to enter this for the following challenges:
Secret Crafter - Black and White
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Thanks for looking.
