Morning everyone, today is the first day of half term! so very little crafting will be done this week as I will be taking amelia out to see some of her friends, and with two or more kids in the house through the whole break, i think my craft stuff may have to hide! Although it may be a grate opportunity to let Milly behind the stamps!
Well onto the Challenge! This week at Pear Tree Designs we would like to see creations made using only one colour (monochromatic)! I love creating cards using one colour, you don't realise how many different shades of one colour there is!
this week we are sponsored by
We were fortunate enough this week to be supplied with some beautiful images from our sponsor Cardmadfairys Creations! When I saw the image 'Young Love' i knew it was the one I wanted to use strait away, I have so many ideas with this image but I need a day when I have nothing else to do to try what I would like! If you have time, pop over and take a look at the digis available!
So onto my card, This week I decided to go for black, grey's and white, I used my pro-markers to colour the image I used Ice greys 1-5, Although the image had shading on it I did use the different shades in different places to try and add more effect.
I used ribbon from my stash and the flowers are ones I brought over the weekend, they were £1 for 28 flowers, I didn't think that was bad! So I had to purchase a few different colours! The tickets on the bottom are digital ones I purchased over at Cuddly Buddly Crafts, they have some lovely digi's over there!
You can see in the girls dress where I have tried to pick out the detail on her dress using Ice grey 5. I was a bit unsure as to if it looked right at first as i wanted to put this on a grey card base but I have no Grey card.
Well I hope you like what I have created and that you will join us over at Pear Tree Designs this week! If you need some more inspiration why not take a look at what the rest of the DT have created over on the PTD blog??
