Monochrome 'Max with Salam' @ Visible Image

Hi Y'all
Just a quick blog today, I've been banning myself from heat embossing as i'm addicted, now that's no bad thing but I thought it only right I play with ink and only ink for a change and only 1 ink !!!
So I've brought to you my 'quickie1 ink monochrome Max'

Now this is just to show people that you don't have to colour images in or have lots of different coloured inks to create a nice quick card and you could give this card to a child and they can colour the image in their selves! Simple card using white and black card stock, a 6x6 blank card, the stamps are the wunderbarrs Visible Images Maxbrick wallLarge tall grass, black cat (I call him Salam) from the Good luck set and the birds from the awesome Free your imagination set and all inked in black soot DI......simples :D
oh and 3 black gems I added for the cat collar!
My Steve liked this soooo much,  he asked if i'd make his best buddy one, he's married a U.S Marine and moved to California and he's missing him bless, they have a 'Bromance' going on haha :D......and i think he chose Max as a 'hint' for a phone call!
So I obliged and made one into an easel card as requested and Steve also wanted Best Friend & Thinking of you adding from the fab More than words, using 'thinking of you' as the stopper, and added to the Polka dot background base, some black pearls and a silver charm to finish.....job done! :D
Fab for a quick card!
I do wonder if Jefferson will colour Max in LOL

Check out our new addition to the characters Clara she's gorgeous and is good old elegant Edgar's new lady friend ;o)... they're both HERE too, so watch this never know they might have 'kiddie characters' together one day,awwww that'd be nice :D
But then again Max & Molly may just beat them too it!!!.....I do hope so, they'd have 'funky' kids ;o)
