Crafts & Me DT card.................Moonlight Siren

Good morning my lovely friends its that time of week for a new challenge over at
This week we have a fab challenge, the theme is Monochrome
You can use any colour you like as long as its just the one colour.
The lucky winner this weeks will win 3 downloads from the fabulous Crafty Purple Frog
For my card I have used the gorgeous 'Moonlight Siren' which you can get here & here I also followed a sketch.

I love this stamp altho it has took me a while to finally ink her up......she has been stuck in a box with all my other un-inked stamps....she can be filed away now in my folder lol.
A lot of the time when I go Mono I do go for greys....I really love these colours. Altho my fabulous talented DT sisters have created stunners with their colour choices pop over to see them I know they would love you to visit.


The papers are a mixture of GCD 'Paris Nights' & 'La Creme Stack' which I got from here
The silver corners & ribbon slider is from my stash.


The flower is from Wild Orchid & the beautiful crochet flower was part of a crimbo pressie of my fabby teamie Vanessa from Crafty Purple Frog.
The ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons & all card is A4 card from Papermill Direct


Here is the close-up. She is coloured with Copics. For the background I used 'Aspen Mist' VersaMagic Chalk Ink which I've had for ages from here I also did the sentiment with it as well. I also added Diamond stickles to the sun & added Brushed Pewter stickles to the butterflies. Pearls are from my stash.
Well thats it from me for now we hope you will join us for this challenge we look forward to seeing all your wonderful creations.
Thankyou to everyone for your fabulous comments on my last tutorial I really do appreciate it, it was worth all the work. I also want to say hi to my new followers & welcome, thankyou for becoming followers. 

Thankyou for popping in to see my creation I really do appreciate it, hugs to you all.
Enjoy the rest of your day & take care.
