Black & white at WW1

The color at White With 1 this month is black. To create only in black and white sounded challenging and fun so I decided to give it a try. I wanted to use a picture in color and thought that this one of DD playing had suitable colors.

To decorate the background I used black mist and Distress Ink on a mask from Pink Paislee. The photo mat is painted with black gesso. (The challenge is also to use paints/mists).

The black flowers are made of tissue paper and brads from My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found. The other flowers are made of brads (same brand) and muslin colored with black Distress Ink. The branch is a mistable canvas from Prima colored with the same ink.

Thanks for looking!!! And thanks for leaving comments!!!
