Monochrome at That Craft Place- new challenge

Hi there! it is time for a brand new challenge at That Craft Place, and this fortnight's theme is 'monochrome' I had great fun with the theme despite my original misgivings about being able to colour in monochrome! apart from the odd itch to add a pop of colour which I firmly squashed, it was better than I thought!

I originally wasn't going to use 'love from sugar' again as I used her for my last challenge inspiration, but as I had her in my colouring pile again, I decided to test my monochrome colouring, and in the end loved it so much I couldn't not finish the project with her! I think it proves that you can use one image in so many ways! and i also have to admit, she is one of my favourite Sugar Digis!

I coloured with the copics - N8,N6,N4,N2 nothing else!
the sentiment is computer generated inside a speech bubble shape which I fussy cut.
I had some black and white papers left in my stash so I used three of these, matted in white and then black cardstock.
I made the flowers using an MFT die - this one is flower trio in papers to coordinate with the card, and if you look carefully the heart waste from the joanna sheen banner die is used as centres.
I also used white buttons from my last load of goodies from TCP- I can highly reccomend the docraft vintage notes buttons- you get a LOT in the packet and they are all so pretty!
I used some of my black lace as well, and my liquid pearls in opal- I'm trying to use it up so I can try the cosmic shimmer at TCP instead.. I have been assured it is the bees knees !
i also  used a rectangle of cheesecloth behind the image, guessed it is from TCP!
once again, you get a LOT for your money and the cards I have done using it have hardly made a dent in the amount of cheesecloth I had!

That Craft place is both a physical shop in Polegate Sussex 
and there is also a facebook group, so if you aren't near the shop you can get your goodies that way. you can either pay straight away or request a pidgeon hole and pay for all th goodies you have accrued at the end of the month.. fantastic idea for keeping postage costs down, and also it makes you less likely to miss items off your list ;)

I hope you come and play along in the monochrome challenge.. I look forward to seeing your entries!
