Sassy Cheryl's: #179 Black & White (like a photo!)

Me, again, trying to follow the letter of the challenge-the look of a black and white photo!

I had a little winning streak a couple of weeks ago.  Sadly, it didn't help me win the lottery, but I did win a set of stamps from Kraftin' Kimmie, called Lil' Athletes by none other than our wonderfully talented Ms. Sassy Cheryl, herself!  So, I got inky!  This great MME paper, Meadow Lark, was in my stash-just right for this challenge.  I've been playing with my Fiskar's Fuse.  I have three of the embossing dies-very cool!  This label, behind the cutie patootie ballerina, is one of them.  I popped on a few flowers-oh, NO, I see green...oh, well, they stay!  I colored this lil' gal with Copics-warm grays.  I cut her out, mounter her own some black card stock and cut her out again!

I sure hope you'll join us this week for the Sassy Cheryl's challenge.  You must use one of Cheryl's images, a digi or a rubber stamp.  You might be on a winning streak, and if you win at Sassy Cheryl's you win BIG-2 images!!!
