Feeling Grey and Distressed!!!

This card covers too Challenges
Both of which I have found a real challenge
(I suppose that's the idea lol)
The first challenge is the Pollycraft one this fortnight its to use distressing
I find this really difficult as I tend to be a nice clean line person
I have done some tearing on all the papers
The other challenge is from the Secret Crafter and this is to use Shades of Grey
the only other colours allowed are skin and hair!
Again I struggled with this as I kept wanting to add just a little colour!
The image is Pollycraft Download 'Ginger Tea'
She is coloured using my Letraset Tria Markers
The papers I have used were a set I brought from Hobbycraft
but I cannot remember the make sorry
The black piece of paper behind Ginger is from B&Q's
and is a piece of wallpaper!
I finished the card with some black gems in the centre of the flowers.
