You're A Saint!!!

Greetings Hambo Friends and Fans!!  Thanks for coming by today!!  There's a brandy new challenge over at the Hambo Hoedown Challenge blog and this week we are challenging you to use only Black and White on your projects!!  This week's image is an absolutely fabulous one.  It is called Nun.  It comes with a few very funny and slightly snarky sentiments. 

I have colored the Nun in with my Copics and Prismacolor Markers.  I used my Copic Xpress Blending paper and blended and colored and blended and colored and blended and colored some more to make the shading just how I wanted it. 
I used some fabulous new papers from Bazzill and Amy Tangerine to pull together an eclectic mix of patterns and shades.  I used some of my extra Amy Tangerine paper, a sheet of music and some white plastic mesh to create the hand rolled flower grouping in the upper left corner.  I added some black and white pearls to the center of my flowers and adhered them with hot glue.
I punched out my sentiment using an old SU! word punch.  I then coated the sentiment with Versamark ink and clear embossing powder and heat set it to give my sentiment panel a nice shine.  I did this process three times making sure it was nice and shiny. 
Apparently there was some stray glitter either on my Versamark pad or in my embossing powder because they got suspended in the shine of the sentiment panel which ended up looking very cool!

I do so hope you come join us over at the Hoedown!!  Can't wait to see your black and white creations!!

Crafty Hugs!
