This week at Crafty Cardmakers our challenge is hosted by Beth. She has chosen Monochrome as her theme. You can use any colour you choose, it doesn't have to be black, but she wants to see your creations made using only shades of one colour. She will allow highlights of one different colour, but it must not be a major player in your project. You can also, of course, use skin tones and hair, but other than that please stick to the one colour.
We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge. First up is IndigoBlu. They are offering their amazing FlitterGlu starter kit and their 'Love Is' stamp. Check out the challenge for details. Secondly, Digi Doodle Shop are offering a $10 gift certificate for their shop.
I decided to use blue as my colour. I got out a stamp I've had for a while but that hadn't seen ink before. It's by Hobby Art from the Butterfly Kisses collection and the set is called Far Away. I stamped this lovely girl using Versafine Majestic Blue onto watercolour paper and then painted her using just one of the blues from my little Koh-i-Noor pallet. I cut her out using Nesties ovals and also used the ovals for the dark blue frame. Then I mounted her onto a die cut using Labels Ten. The background paper came free with a magazine (sorry can't remember which one) and I stamped the sentiment directly onto it. Lastly I added the little bows and some pearl. I think I overdid the pearls at the top and should have just stuck to three like at the bottom, but once they were on I couldn't get them off again!
