My 1st Sweet Pea card - Mono as well!!!!!
Hello again just popping on for a quick post......hopefully lol. There is a new challenge blog called Craftalicious & their 2nd challenge(its a fortnightly challenge) is Monotone. I have NEVER done a mono card before so I was stepping a little out of my comfort zone & it had my head done in a little bit.....the card ended up taking me 3 & half hours from start to finish. I thought 1 of my Sweet Pea stamps would be perfect for this sort of challenge....I have 4 of them which I brought ages ago but never got around to making a card with them. I actually stamped her 4 times & just coloured her hair on each image & basically my monotone would be which ever hair looked the nicest lol......it turned out to be blue & here she is...... I even got around to using my Letraset Air Marker kit which would you believe I've had for nearly 2 months but I've just kept forgetting about it. I used it for the paper trellis, I do need to practice some more with it lol. I do like doing these easel cards as you know I find them so much fun... The papers are from K&Co & all the bellies are from my stash, the metal corners are from Ebay.. The angel charm is from my jewellery making collection. She is called Faraway Moon, isn't she pretty I love these stamps because I think they are different & quite unique. The moon is covered with Stardust stickle glitter & she is coloured with my Promarkers. The frame around her I embossed with Happy Birthday through my Cuttlebug & then cut out using my nestabilities & then distressed it with distress ink Denim. All the backing paper also got their edges distressed with my scissors, all of the dark blue underneath the papers are Denim distress ink. I think thats it I'm going to go link it up to a few challenges which I found today. Thank you for taking time to visit me. Also I feel rather ashamed because I've had 2 new followers over this last week & not welcomed them.....I am so sorry girls!! So without further ado I would like to welcome the wonderfully talented Coops & talented Sue from Craftyirchins, thank you so much for becoming followers big hugs to you both <>.
