Magnolia Down Under Challenges DT - Black and White Images

Woohoo!!!  It is time for another Magnolia Down Under Challenge and this week it is my turn to choose the theme.  I chose a particular favourite of mine, "Black and White Images".  I love colouring like this and turning the image into an old photo - so much fun!  I'm thrilled how this one turned out too and have been itching to show it to you for weeks!  (I work at least a month in advance most of the time).
 I coloured the image using the W grey copics and also created the little beach scene behind Tilda with copics.  Can you see the little sail boat on the horizon?  I've covered the whole image in UTEE to give it a true photograph look.  The pennants were cut from the Girl's Paperie paper I have used behind the image.
 I've had the Flags doohickey out again lol.  The sentiment is from Whiff of Joy.  All the flowers and the charm are from The Ribbon Girl.
 The balloons were cut from a Webster's Pages cut out sheet and the twine is from The Ribbon Girl.
 The gorgeous pink pleated ribbon is also from The Ribbon Girl.
 I've used a Doohickey Tag die on either side of the card and the gorgeous lace threaded through them is from The Ribbon Girl too.
I hope you like it and I've inspired you to join us at Magnolia Down Under Challenges.  Pop over to the blog to see the rest of the team's gorgeous creations.  Thanks for looking! x
