Monochrome card.


Well it's 1st of Febuary today woo hoo, January can be such a long month after Christmas can't it? and I supose the next thing on the crafty persons mind is, Valentine's day. Oh I do like this effect, don't you? I have used monochrome before but I don't think often enough looking at this lol. This is the challenge over on Greeting Farm to use one colour family along with white or cream. Another challenge this fit is Basic Grey and the focus is animals, a super Magnolia prize if you win too. And last but by no meens least is Allsorts & this week it's a sketch! You can also enter for a DT position this week so why not have a go!



Here is a close up of the image, 'm afrais it's not very good large but you can see better than on the first photo. Isn't this image cute I have to get more I love the skunk from greeting farm she is such a sweetie lol I have used my Tim Holts inks and sponge thingy to soften the edges and give it the oldie look and the image is coloured with copics. I really am quite pleased with this one hope you like it to, why not pop across have a look at all the DTY egs they are wonderful and maybe you can have a go too! Thank you for looking. Love Dawn xx


Items Used:- Card stock SU. DP, basic grey. Stamps, Image Greeting Farm, sentiment WOJ.Flowers Prima (e.) and brads Papermania

Great monochrome look but I especially like the little bit of colour in the eyes that just makes them pop. Gorgeous.
