Challenge 6 - Monochrome Madness

This week´s theme with the Creative Card Crew sure had me pulling my hair out as I really had to raid my limited stash to find something to fit their Black/White & Grey or Silver colour combo.



Coloured my gorjuss girl with prisma´s, used lots of nesties and flower punches, matted white onto black ribbon. MSDL punch and ticket stamps from the The Hobby House.
