Hello, and welcome!
I don't know about our gracious Queen, but, after all the festivities of the past week, I'm pooped!
How did she manage to
endure enjoy all that sitting, standing, walking, and smiling without fallin' over with exhaustion? The woman is an 86 year old marvel, and a wonderful example of service and commitment to duty.....long may she reign!
Okay, got that out of my system.....on with today's business.....and it's Friday (I think), so that means another fun challenge at
and we want to see your
MONOCHROMATIC creations, whether that be a card, altered art, sewing, whatever......as long as you stay with one main colour.
We have a lovely prize of 2 digi images from
for our random winner, so do pop over and see what you fancy!
Our Design Team came up with a rainbow of inspiration, and got to choose GREEN!
We all had the same image to play with......she's called PROM QUEEN
I stamped a scroll image onto an 8"x8" shaped card base, using dark green chalk ink, then layered 3 different design papers, dividing the bottom two with pretty lace........the third layer is flocked, and I cut a scalloped nestie shape, embossed it with a Swiss Dots folder, layered a length of glittery green ribbon......
The dress is paper-pieced, and I added green Stickles and tiny beads to the dropped waistline, and Stickles to the hairbow and flower corsage.......the image is cut out with my new X-cut shape die....pretty! The bottom border is cut with a Memory Box die, using a 4th dp..........
I had run a border of pricked holes around the edges of the papers, and all the edges are inked with green chalk ink. Really not sure about that flower... Looks more like a cabbage to me....haaaaa! Certainly isn't to be found in nature, that's for sure.......
I used a stick pin, and tied a piece of that sparkly ribbon around it, and added the teeny key charm.........and left well alone!
Monochromatic is not my fave kind of card, but ho-hum.......Pauline (our Big Boss Lady) waves a big stick, and who am I to argue?....haaaahaaa!
(Not really......she's a pussy cat, but I'm hedgin' me bets!)
