Greyscale + 1

Hi everyone!
I am back again (twice today lol) with a project for the AurorWings challenge blog.HERE
Image Boy Fae sitting on leaves HERE
AuroraWings shop HERE
My project is A4 and I used watercolour pencils and a charcoal pencil.
This months challenge is "Greyscale"You use shades of grey on the skin and hair and then add one other colour.
It's my 1st attempt at this but the DT have done such amazing projects I dream to be that good one day but not any time soon!
Still I do enjoy trying and as my Gran used to say! "If at first you don't succeed, try and try again"!

I used some Distress ink for the background and matted it onto some Bazzill card stock. I used a Cherry Lynn flourish and Nelly Snellen butterfly stamp.

Hi everyone!
I have been quite naughty recently buying AlteNew stamps!!  But I love them.
They just fell into my basket. 
I have had a play over the last couple of days.
(I'm supposed to be making a mini album of our Tyler for Indra lol)

1st card 7x7 was made using the Persion Motifs stamped with Black Versafine & coloured with AM.
I splattered with Cosmic Shimmer spray.

2nd card was stamped with Peony Bouquet onto 6x6 Kraft card I brushed Cosmic Shimmer Mica paints onto the stamps 
I used Orange Gold, Rose Hue & Yellow sun I also used the paints for the splatters.

3rd DL card was made using Peony Bouquet and Distress inks.

4th card C5 I used Beautiful Day and a mixture of Distress inks, Brilliance  and Stamping up inks.
I think it would be much easier if you can afford to buy the Altenew inks but it was stamps or inks and the stamps won lol! I did buy a purple set with my 1st stamps and I love them.
I am entering into Less is more one layer splatter challenge
I am also entering into the AlteNew challenge.
