Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Inspiration Post - Friday 7 July 2017

 Here is my weekly inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog. 

Before I do I'd like to remind you that our challenge this month is "MONOCHROME".

Here is my inspiration post with this theme.
 For my card I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik image called "Little Companion".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and inked around the edge with Tim Holtz's Pumice Stone distress ink.

The backing papers I have used are from the First Edition 6x6 Black Out paper pad.  They are such a wonderful quality paper.

I used one of the double-sided sheets of the Black Out paper to die-cut some flowers using one of my very early Marianne Designs dies purchases and also used one of Sue Wilson's Finishing Touches greenery dies.

I have finished the card off with a doily, lace, satin ribbon, sentiment strip cut from a backing paper which I think was from a magazine and some lovely gems.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
