ABC of Christmas that is. I know, I've hardly got over making cards for last year but this year I'm starting early. So much got put on hold last november and december, I don't want that to happen this year. The challenge over at the ABC Christmas Challenge blog might help me get closer to my goal.
This week it's B for Black and White. Even got a freebie to use donated by Dustin Pike.

This is my take on it. I was following the sketch over on the group "Craft Mad and Loving It" in the Craft Bubble. It is white - but even with my light box - everything changes colour slightly.
All the BP were donated last year by a friend so have no idea where they're from.
The image was coloured entirely with black watercolour pencil, matted onto black then more white.

The sentiment is from Sentiments 4 You. The snowflake is a punch and emboss in white mounted onto black.
