Something A little Different!!!!!

Well!!! what can I say!   This was way out of my comfort zone but I was so intrigued by the challenge Jane lay down over at 

I just had to have a pop at it.  

Jane's challenge is simple (not) lol,  Black and White,  now this is where my problem started.

  I don't have any grey or black copics/promarkers/flex markers etc.  All I have is a black Derwent pencil, but of course as soon as you touch the pencil with a paper stump and sansodor oil it blends out to a grey, but it doesn't really matter because I enjoyed the challenge, I had to think outside the box, so thank you Jane. I did use a dark terracotta with the black on Tilda's cheeks.  

Papers are Prima from the Engraver collection, the trim and flower is hand made by me using some left over linen material from a pair of curtains.  The lovely bling trim is from  and my sentiment is from whimsy stamps.
