I made this card using Mikey from The Stamping Bazaar. The challenge this week is mono-chromatic of course! I chose to go with a black and white color scheme and used the Copic Toner range spectrum. All of the papers I had on had were slightly cream or off-white in color so I used E50 to color the background which also helps give the image a slight glow.

Did you know? The violin is a string instrument, usually with four strings tuned in perfect fifths. It is the smallest, highest-pitched member of the violin family of string instruments, which includes the viola and cello. The violin is sometimes informally called a fiddle, regardless of the type of music played on it. A person who makes or repairs violins is called a luthier. The parts of a violin are usually made from different types of wood and it is usually strung with gut, nylon or other synthetic, or steel strings.

Update: I was the winner at Craft Your Days Away for this Challenge!
