Having had great fun with the smudging I decided to try another one but this time I used a darker grey by mixing elephant with little black dress.
Again I used the same two smudgy pencils for the hi-lighting.
I decided to use a more open stamp and on a tag this time around. Again starting with the white down the middle as per Jo's technique here.
Then I added the black and scribbled some white over the top for a grey colour.
Gave it all a smudge.
Added some more white dashes around the outside.
And finally added a piece of linen ribbon after colouring it with iced spruce and black soot distress stains.
Simon Says Monday have a theme of got ink and are simply asking to see any type of ink on your project, I used black archival.
Country View Crafts have a theme of letters and there are lots of random letters on this tag.
