This is the second part of the coloring tutorial. This is how I do the black and white look.  I find the U-tube videos to be very helpful when learning new techniques like this. If you missed the first part, Sepia coloring, click here to check it out.


I started out by stamping the image with black Memento ink.

I colored  the skin first using the following copic colors: C00, C1, C2.  The blush was done with C2.

The next part I colored was the hair, using copic markers: C5, C3, C7.

Next I colored the dress, using copic colors: W0, W1, W3, W5 .  I like to switch the color tones for the clothes, just a personal choice.

The last part I colored was the flowers. On this card I wanted some color, so I picked: V000, V01, BV04, YR20, YR31, G03. I wanted soft colors to go with the black and white theme.

Now to making the card!  I stamped the saying onto white card  stock and cut it out using the Floral ovals die cut.

I cut the image out and mounted it in the open space on the  oval.

The next  item I cut was the purple paper with the Daisy lace frame.  This is a very  intricate die, and one way to not have to use a pin to get all the little pieces out is to lay dow your die cut side up, then place wax paper on top of the die, then the card stock.

This was layered onto purple paper and  and mounted onto the white card base.


Thanks for stopping by and exploring coloring images to give your cards the classic black and white look.
