Black with 2 May Challenge

Hello again!

This month at Black with 2 was definitely a challenge for me - mainly because of the colours!  My layout ended up completely different to what I had in mind when I first saw the colours.  I thought,  that I would end up with a masculine, grungy page, but quite the opposite has happened!

Here are the details for May:

And here is a closeup of the sketch:

So, based on the mood board and sketch, here is my layout!

Products used:
Kaisercraft paper
Modelling paste
Black paint
TWC mask
Chipboard:  A2Z Scraplets & Twiddlebitz
Flowers:  Petaloo & Prima
Die-namics Leaf die
Mr Huey's Silver Spray
Black & silver embossing powder
Liquid Pearls
Black thread
Rhinestones, rhinestone flourishes & seam binding from my stash
Lace - purchased from Bella Paperie

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Until next time,
Yvette x
