Whiff of Joy Challenge DT - Bingo and another preview

 Good morning!!  Starting off with quite a different card for me today!!  It is time for another challenge at Whiff of Joy Challenges and this fortnight we have a bingo challenge.  I have chosen the line kraft, pearls and ribbon for my card which is a very, very different style for me.  This is another preview from the Whiff of Joy Elisabeth Bell Sympathy Collection that will be released on the 28th.  When I saw this Weeping Willow tree image I wanted to make it look like one of those charcoal and chalk sketches.  I think I managed to achieve the look I was going for.
 I have simply stamped the image with black ink then added highlights with a white gel pen rather than chalk to all the places the sunlight is hitting, and added some extra shadows for my "charcoal" areas using W7 and W5 copic markers.  What do you think??
 The white grosgrain ribbon is also new at Whiff of Joy and the black pearls I have used are by Hero Arts.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us this fortnight at Whiff of Joy Challenge.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's stunning creations!  Thanks for looking! x
