Mad for Markers ~ DT ~ Colouring with Greys

Hi Blogging Beauties

This is my DT card for the current Mad for Marker's Challenge
Colouring with Greys.  

If you need to purchase some grey Copics I recommend you head on over to Sammi at Mad for Markers and go shopping!  I get all my Copic supplies from Sammi and she is wonderful to deal with.  While you are there check out the yummy new stamps she has in stock as well!!

I had a really enjoyable time making this card.  It was a special order for a lady who wanted a birthday card for her friend of hers who loves cooking.  This is my first time at every colouring a whole image in grey...well I added a couple of colours as well.  I was trying to go for a Sepia look like the photographs that also have little bits hand painted colour in them...do you know the ones I mean.  The really old photos.  I know my Mum has some really old ones with hand painted colours on them.

In my collection of Copics I have the warm greys and the cool greys so I went with the warm greys in this card.  The colours I used are:

Greys: W-1, W-3, W-5, W-7
Other colours: R20, E35, E33, E31, R29, R59

This was a really fun challenge! 
I recommend you have a go!
I loved it.
Thanks for looking and happy colouring.
