Monochrome for Craftalicious
This is my first attempt at intentionally making a monochromatic card. It was fun trying to decide which color to choose and then what to do with it after choosing! lol I chose my image to start with and decided she needed to be done in blues. This sweet stamp comes from the Pixie Cottage Hannah collection. I decided to also try to use my embossing folders that at one point I thought I could not live without but never seem to use! I used a little flower one for the bottom piece of white cardstock and and the twig one for the upper piece. I do wish they showed up better in the photo.....like they do in person! I wanted some bling to her so after composing the card, I went back and painted Blingz on different areas including all the flowers and lace. I colored the little dragonfly with Smooch and then added a little Blingz to him too.
Challenges I am entering are:
Creatalicious - sketch

The Treehouse- favorite tool. Not too sure how to show off my ATG so am going with my Cuttlebug. I used it to do the embossing folders as well as cut the stem swirls for the flower.
