Steampunk 2 B & W

I decided to make another card for Tiddly Inks Steampunk Showoff Challenge, but this time in black and white. Boy was this a toughy for me, I think my brain was making it harder than it needed to be ;) Practice, practice though and it shall get easier!! I used a couple of different images from the Tiddly Inks shop, the first is Miss "Tanker Fairy Sits" and I also used a few images from the "Steampunk papers-extra goodies", which is the frame, the side embellishment and the strip of paper. The "Fern log" came from Make it Crafty. To get all the black and white shades I used a bunch of greys, black and my white with touches of a white gel pen here and there and layered the colors the same way I would if it were in color, just had to view in B & W. As I said I need a lot of practice in this area but it was fun to stretch my mind. If anyone has any questions please let me know and I hope you are having a wonderful Friday :)
