Princess Tilda in Black & White

I bought a few back issues of The Craft Stamper Magazine last week and in one of them there was an article about colouring in Black and White. I was really inspired by the article and decided to have a play. This is what I've come up with.

I've coloured Tilda using Promarkers and the blender pen. She's then been cut out and given some dimension by running an embossing tool round the edges to make them curl. She's then been adhered to the card using black foam pads. I've made the flower and vine leaves using this tutorial from What a Beautiful Mess.
