Black, White & Gray

Hi Everyone! This card is for the Drama Queen in your life. lol. Someone who's over the top & always wants to be the center attention. I think we all know a few of those...

Picture 1: The Front of the Card.
This little gal sure cant be boxed in. She needs to be free & front and center. This is why her arm is extending outside of the frame.

Picture 2: Closeup of Image, Frame, Ribbon, etc.

Picture 3: The Inside of the Card.
  1. This card was created as a combo card. It is for 2 challenges: Tiddly Inks & The Burtonesque Dolls. At the Dolls (http://theburtonesquedolls.blogspot.com/) we had to create a black & white project inspired by "Ed Wood." I didn't think that this challenge would have been difficult for me because I love b/w & I have some beautiful paper but i was stuck. Since it has been years that I don't work with a monochromatic scheme, I was itching to throw some color on it. I mulled over this card for several days. Finally, I just had to close my eyes and go for it.
  2. At Tiddly's (http://tiddlyinkschallenge.blogspot.com/) we had to "Match It Up." We had to match our papers with the image's clothing, accessories, etc. I tried paper piecing the coat but it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be so I just pieced the sleeves. I matched that paper with the frame. I matched the neck tie with the ribbon in the background. I matched the skull she is holding with the dp I made myself. And so forth.
Even though I struggled with this one for a bit I still enjoyed myself. I feel as if I'm putting some of my schooling to use.
Thanks for stopping by. And as always, I love reading your comments.
