For this project I used decided to play around a bit more with the Black and White theme of colouring images.  Usually I use a mixture of Warm's and Cool grey's but for this one I decided to keep to just the 10 greys from the Warm section of Copics pens.

I was quite pleased with the result - so I guess you don't have to have every colour of pen on the market!

Just loved this stamp by Sara Burrier  called the The Talisman available at Crafts for Me.  I always love to get any boy/male stamps as there are so few in comparison to girl/female stamps.

This week's challenge is a joint theme THINGS WITH WINGS  as originally planned and sadly a THANK YOU  and Goodbye to the Phindy and her challenge for a while.

I have chosen one of my favourite images called Love Flutterby and coloured her using just the warm and cool greys.  I think this image just works so well whether you use the full spectrum of colour or use only the tones.
