Monochrome Challenge



This is my card entry for the Sugar Nellie Monochrome Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=489600
I had planned to finish my essay today, but it is a Bank Holiday, so I threw caution to the wind! No way was I studying today!

Anyway, monochrome......I lost sleep wondering how on earth to stick to just 2 colours and still have flesh!.... luckily a bit of artistic licence is allowed, and you dont have to colour your characters as zombies! :D lol.
This is slightly larger than a 6 x 6, from a kit of massive square cards from QVC. The flowers, papers and glitter borders are also QVC, as is the ribbon and brad. Amazing what you can find when you have a good old mooch through your stash! ;)
I found it quick to colour in, but much longer to faff about with the flowers! I cut up an old necklace for the chain, as have quite a passion for de-constructing mass produced supermarket jewellery - you can often get it at a bargain bin price!
Hope everyone had a great Bank Holiday - our weather was fab :) Good luck to all the entries in this challenge. xx

This is beutifully classy & what an interpretation - love your colouring too. I know exactly what you mean about the flowers.
Glad you had a day off from studying.
