Passion for Promarkers - Monochrome...

Good morning, dear Blogger friends and a Happy New Year to you all!  I hope you had a fabulous Christmas, however you spent it and that 2016 proves to be a happy, healthy and crafty one!  I am having trouble (as I always do) to get back into the swing of things and have totally enjoyed spending family time together and having hubby off work for a fortnight - the problem is it just seems to go by so quickly! But with the boys back at school and hubby back in work, things will slide back into some sort of normality...which is why I'm here!  Today sees the start of our very first challenge for 2016 over at Passion for Promarkers and it's the very lovely and talented Lucy in the hostess chair, giving us a theme of 'Monochrome'.  Don't forget, this can be any colour of monochrome , not just black and white and Lucy will allow for skin and hair colour to be different (thank goodness!) although check out her fab complete monochrome creation over on the PfP blog or on her blog, HERE!...
We have a brand new sponsor this week in the form of All Dressed Up Stamps and they are generously offering one lucky winner 2 digis of their choice!
As DT members, we were lucky enough to get a digi to play with and I went with the ever so chic Paris...
...I decided that rather than make a card, this pretty little image would look lovely in one of the box frames that I got in the sale...

...It was really hard to try and get a good photograph as the days have just been so dark recently and trying to get a good pic of a black and white project on a grey day, is not the easiest! I coloured the image with my Pro/Flexmarkers and added some bling to the tower and a few sprinkles of 'stuff' to the image...
...I added some bunting and finished with some black diamantes.
I am planning to do some more markets this year, despite the Christmas one being a bit of a washout, as we want to try and build them up rather than give up at the first hurdle! This little frame is the first project of my 2016 stock, so only a few more things to go to fill my table!?!
I hope you can find the time to join in with our fresh challenge this week and look forward to seeing all the wonderful things that you make - there is always such a fabulous variety in our entries! Don't forget to hop on over to the Passion for Promakers blog to see what my talented teamies have been up to and remember to tell us where you've used your Letraset products to be elligible to win the prize!
Have a happy Tuesday and an even happier 2016!
Crafty hugs,
