Monochrome in August!

Hi Everyone

It is getting soooo exciting now.  Less than a month to go before the First Challenge goes live at Unicorn Challenge Blog.  

It is my turn to share my creation with you for August so here it is!

I have used an Art By Miran Image and she is called Bashful Belinda.  As you may know I love colouring in Grey Scale/Monochrome and I couldn't resist a bit of this for her.  

I coloured her using my ProMarkers.  The Card Blank is a 6" Scalloped and My Base/Frame Layer is Bazzill Blackbird.  The Patterned Papers are all from Dovecrafts Monochrome Paper Pack.  I have added a Poka Dot Organza Ribbon and Hand Tied the Bow and to finish added Pearl Gems.  I stayed away from my usual Flourishes and Flowers as I didn't want to hide her or lose her in all my usual foliage lol!

Thank you for visiting my blog today and sharing this card with me.  Would be lovely to see you over at Unicorn Challenge,  I hope you can come and join in with us on 1st September.  Please leave me a comment to let me know what you think, I do appreciate you leaving them and love reading them all.  Hope to see you again soon.

  4. What a great image for a monochrome card - it as a hint of the 50's I think.

Love the image (she's sitting in my "please colour me folder right now!), colouring in monochrome is something I've never tried... you've inspired me to give it a try :-) Love the papers and embellies too, ticks all the boxes AND uses that patterned paper we love to see at Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge
