Black & white Bon jour!

The Just Bex forum has a big challenge going on at the moment. Thirteen different challenges were launched over the weekend and are 'live' for a week with points to be earned for each one completed. Not sure I'll find all that much time to play but I've managed one for the Black & White with one other colour challenge



I kept it bold with a big single paisley stamp that came in a batch of UMs I got on eBay. The dewdrop colour didn't seem quite intense enough for this design so I coloured the backs with a Copic marker to deepen the shade a bit.

Supplies: single paisley (unknown maker), Bon jour (Alluring Impressions), Brilliance Graphite Black ink, dewdrops (fire), Copic marker (Lipstick Red) scoring board, corner rounder

Au revoir!
