Some Odd Girl Monochrome

This week's Some Odd Girl Challenge is to only use Black and White.  I was excited to do this challenge because I've never colored with a pure monochrome shading technique, so it was new for me.  I also used this opportunity to complete this week's CPS Sketch #240.

Here is the sketch:

And here is my take on the card using Some Odd Girl's Sigh Mae in her unsaturated glory:

The card base is Papertrey Ink's black cardstock.  The background paper is from DCWV's Alphabetics paper pack.  The 'H' and 'I' are from the same back.  I cut out and framed each letter.

Sigh Mae was colored using Copic's C9, C7, C5, C3, C2, and C1.  To color the skin, I used C2 and C1, then used the colorless blender to shade.

Lastly, I used my Black and Frost Stickles to accent her dress, shoes, eyes, and hair.  I used liquid pearl to add some shiny to the highlights in her hair.

Thanks for looking!
