Over at mo’s they are going….

……Monochromatic! That’s the challenge over at Mo’s right now. I was lucky enough to win last weeks challenge over at Mo’s last week, so this week i have used me prize image Smile

Now when it comes to Monochromatic everything HAS to be the same colour, but just different shades of it. So when i started to create a card i just couldn’t


I made sure everything was blue, but then i got to thinking that even if all the papers, embellies etc that i used were blue, it still wouldn’t be Monochromatic. It stopped being Monochromatic the minute i added the skin colours. So instead i decided for black/grey. Here’s what i made…very simple.

Even the cb is grey. The paper i printed ontp however is white, although i did chalk all the bacground in light grey.

I just got these 2 new embossing folders. i don’t usually bother much with embossing folders but i adore these, they are def at the top of me ‘FAVE’ list.

The embossing folder below reminded me of the ‘photo card mounts’ that you get with photographs, so i thought it would be a cute idea to pop this cute little chappie in there. A simple idea for a baby anouncement card!

I LOVED colouring in just greys, it is the first time i have ever done it and i must say that i did get a bit carried away…lol
