Olivia in Black and White

Well, I finally completed the scrapbook page that I started for the Just Add Ink #12 Challenge.  When I was trying to complete it for the challenge, I just couldn't get it working the way I wanted it to.  Nothing seemed right and I just couldn't get the look I was after.

So I left it for a couple of days and when I came back to it, I realised that what I wanted was a subtle background... and none of the DSP's were doing the job.  So I created my own subtle DSP using my Baroque Border wheel with a Versamark ink cartridge - I know, they're not for sale!  I'll post a tutorial on how to make one in a few days. 

But for now, here's my completed page!  The photo is of my almost 3 year old daughter, Olivia.

I'm really happy with how it turned out - I'd love to know what you think!
