A Picture's Worth A Thousand Words

Or so they say!  This one is worth one, hope.  As in hope you're having a great week, or whatever it is you're hoping for today.

I made this card for Sassy Cheryl's current Black & White Photo Look challenge. I used Better Than A Thousand Words from the Sassy Sally collection because I love this image and I thought it would look great as a black & white picture.  I used my photo editing program to give it the feel of an old picture and then colored the image using C1, C3 and C7 of my Copics.  I love the simplicity of this card but I really had to resist the urge to gussy it up and add a pop of color. All in all, I think I like it just the way it is!

I'm off to do some more creating.  I have a little more than a week left before school starts back up and I have to head back to work.  I want to squeeze in as much craftiness as I can.

Until next time, have a great day and thanks for stopping by!  TTFN

This card is lovely, especially the way you have retained the photographic look for the digi. The unfussy embellishment makes this card so effective. Good luck with your entry into our challenge. Ingrid xx ( OSAAT Team )
