Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Black and White Images and a Tutorial

 Woohoo!!  It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges and this fortnight we have a favourite theme of mine - to colour your images in black and white only!  If you're unsure how to do this and you'd like to join in then you're in luck as I have created a tutorial showing how I colour images in black and white for the Whiff of Joy Inspirations blog today!  The papers are by Basic Grey from their Curio paper pad.
 I have used Willow With Umbrella for my card as I thought she'd be great in black and white seeing as it's a dull rainy day for her, bless her!  I added some stickles to the raindrops too.
 I added some flowers from my stash.  The blossom and rose are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The gems are from Whiff of Joy and I've used a Martha Stewart punch along the bottom of the image mat.
 The gorgeous ribbon is also from Whiff of Joy - available in some gorgeous colours!
 The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy too, from a previous kit I think.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy Challenges!  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations!  Thanks for looking! x
