The Flower Challenge #64 - Monochrome - Reminder


This month is all about Monochrome but before we go to that I thought I would share my Favourite Four Cards from 'The Flower Challenge' 2021

When I look back at these cards they remind me of why I love colouring
in floral images.

Now to share my cards here for the reminder post

For this card I decided to go with purple, Copic as usual.
The image is a Penny Black Stamp called Poppy Gems.
So easy to stamp, a crisp clear image.

The Copics were all in the BV range, I can give you the colours if you want them, just let me know.

I cut the cardstock using a Honey Bee die called Deckle Edge Squares then blended softly with Distress
Oxide Palest Violet colour and finished off with a die cut sentiment
from Simon Says ' sending smiles'.

Now its time to go see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to.

But before you go here's another photo,
this time from Christmas Eve

Nearly all the grandchildren are here with me and Elysha
photo bombing as the parents all stand on the other side madly
calling names and asking for smiles.

The Flower Challenge #64 Monochrome


Well here we are, its 2022 and we are all hoping for a better year ahead. I think many feel the same as me, we are just looking forward to moving on and hoping that 2020 and 2021 are long behind us.

So many changes to our lives, leaning to live with different rules and hoping we can soon get around and visit others in distant countries again without  the fear of Covid or being caught somewhere that suddenly closes its borders.

Now onto this months Challenge, its monochrome.
Some interpret this as black and white and others as one colour used
within its lightest and darkest range.
I have gone with the colour choice.

I have coloured everything with Copics in the RV range.

I cut the coloured image out with the Tim Holtz Stacked Deckle die
and I used a floral 3D Embossing Folder from Altenew for the background to add a little
depth and texture.

this beautiful image is another of Emily Midgett drawings. Fantastic to colour.

Now its time to go see what the rest of the Design Team have been up to and
also the beautiful creation made by Lisa Elton who was our August Winner.
