The Flower Challenge #44 Monochrome - reminder

It's time for us to get you all motivated again for the challenge this month.
Remember its Monochrome which can be interpreted as Black and White or use a colour but stay within that colour range.

with this card I have done everything with blue. Blue Copics for the flowers, leaves
and sentiment then the same  tone of blue blended through a stencil to give some nice soft
hearts. The card is one layer other than the sentiment.

This is a beautiful stamp from Concord & 9th and I am sad to say not only
is this the first time I have used it but when I went looking it looks like the stamped
has been changed slightly.  I love how it turned out and Im glad I decided
to add the petal folds. It was a lot more work but totally worth it. I went from
B000 B00 B02 B05 and the leaves up in the B90's

I hope you enjoyed your visit and now its time to go The Flower Challenge Blog to check
out what the rest of the Design Team have done and also our wonderful Guest Designer Nonni.

The Flower Challenge #44 Monochrome

Its time for a new challenge over at The Flower Challenge but before you go
check out my card.

I watched a video by Sandy Allnock - on using E tones to colour an image and get a sepia look. I even used the same stamp that Sandy used as I had it and had not coloured till now.  I don't have Sandy's same colouring skill but I was very happy with the end result.

Instead of leaving as a one layer card I used the Honey Bee frame dies that give this
wonderful effect on the edge of the card.

I also added a layer of dark brown funfoam behind to lift the white layer.

And attached to a brown card base. I love how it turned out and left without a sentiment
as I felt it could suit many different occassions.

I was so happy with this colouring that I then went and coloured an
image of three little flowergirls

a digital image from LOTV stamps. Not a great photo but just thought you
might enjoy seeing it now.

Anyway back on track now as you can see its all about Monochrome which many interpret as black and white only but we found last time a lot of people went with using one colour group so we are relaxed with that, either will work. Its fun to work within one colour group and is a great way for you to learn the different shades within a colour.

So its time to go check out what the rest of the Design Team have done and check out the beautiful make by Nonnie who is our Guest Designer this month. So much amazing beauty.
