This is one of the most delightful images from StretchNBubbles - it's simply called "Giggle".

I wanted to do something special with this image, and not overwork it with colour.... so I delved into the world of CHARCOAL PENCIL.... my first attempt with stamps and charcoal as a colouring medium!

Ingredients: Charcoal Pencil - Reeves; Pearl Cardstock - Portacraft, Papers - Portacraft, magazine freebie; White Gel trim - Portacraft; Metal Tag; Bow...

I coloured the image with charcoal pencil, using a pliable eraser to blend and remove unwanted colour.  It was quite a fun trial with the charcoal.... I know I'm going to use it again!  The image is mounted on black woven texture paper, then on rose pattern embossed silver paper.  The background layer of the card is a text paper (magazine freebie) and the same silver embossed paper.  Embellishment trims are the rubbery gel border (what an odd feel!) topped with the etched metal tag, and a black bow to finish.

This card is entered in the challengse at:
Phindy's Place - Black and White
Southern Girls - Anything Goes

Don't forget to stop by the SNB Shop to see the new images just released!  Thanks for peepin'!
