CPS #236 ...Grey Sunflowers?

Hey ya'll!! Yes, I colored my sunflowers grey, lol! I saw a pattern in the Vera Bradley magazine that inspired these colors...love alot of those patterns and my purses that I have too! :D Here is my card:

And I followed the sketch, more or less:

I love coloring in grey tones like this. Reminds me of black and white photos, which I also love. If you look closely at a b/w photo, you will see, it really isn't just b/w...its greys like this! :D I think I'm getting a bit better at sketch challenges...I'm not having AS hard of a time doing them as I used to, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you are having a wonderfully creative week!

This is lovely, Cat. The B&W looks great with the muted colors. I REALLY need to give this technique a try.
