Magnolia Downunder Challenge #41

Hello everyone.
This week at 'MDUC' the challenge is 'Olden Days'.
We need to colour the image in black, white, greys
and add vintage papers and whatever else we like,
to  remind us of days gone by...

I must admit. I was a little freaked out at first about
this challenge, as I don't have any grey markers and
didn't know how I was going to colour it. Silly me LOL,
I used to draw, for hours on end and I have an endless
supply of graphite pencils in every shade. I stopped
drawing when I had my first child 5 years ago (I just
never had the time and the passion just wasn't there
anymore), but these were my favourite art medium :oD

Anyway, I dug around my scrap pile and produced a card
that I'm pretty happy with. I think I really like this new
style. Here is my card...

The 'Post card' paper was amongst a my very first paper
stack pack that I had ever brought a few years ago, I can't
believe that I had never used it before lol.  I had a paper
that had a couple of frames printed on it, so I used one of
them to frame the picture, to give a the effect of a photo. 
The Memories sentiment came from "Definitions and word
ephemera" by 'Paper Pizazz'. I thought these complimented
this style of card.

Stamp     Tilda with Bee, Summer/fence background
Colouring tools      2B, 4B, 6B Derwent pencils
Embellishments      Flowers from Bizzy Becs and Ebay, leaves from
Tickled Pink Stamps, pearl string, ribbon,  flower charm.

Thanks for stopping by, please feel free to leave a comment,
I really do appreciate your thoughts :oD
Happy Stamping everyone.
