Monochrome Monday

Inspired by the current Play Date Cafe Challenge:
As I was not quite sure how to go about this challenge I started to experiment with Gimp and images from the Graphics Fairy. Karen's blog is a true treasure trove and I cannot thank Karen enough for the work she is doing in providing and sharing with us new graphics every day!
My starting point were two images: a bluetinted postcard of a girl and a Halloween Printable which I layered - without altering the colours. The next steps were to find the 'accessories': a crown and a sentiment and a little heart
The colour of the original crown is gold and if you look a bit closer you can still see some golden spots. The heart is part of a winged Valentine heart which I separated from the wings, resized and re-coloured.
The new graphic fits perfectly onto a little canvas which I found in one of my boxes.
Petra.
