Pearl Tidepool

Here is a card I made for the Monochrome challenge at the All That Scraps Wednesday Challenge Blog and the Black & White challenge at Color Me Copic.

I used Amy Young's gorgeous Pearl Tidepool for my card. She is such a beauty! You can find Amy's beautiful stamp line - Sweet November Stamps at All That Scraps.

I colored my image using W9, W7, W5, W3, W1 and W00. You can find an awesome tutorial on coloring black and white images here at Color Me Copic. This is so fun to try and I am sure I'll be doing this again!

I paired her with BasicGrey's elegant Cappella collection. I also colored my Prima swirly gems with a Copic to match the color. A very sweet friend shared this Cornice Edge punch with me. Thank you so much, girl!! I love it! =) The sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

That's all I have for now. Hope you have a great day!


Thanks for stopping by!
