Happy Tuesday! Just a couple more days until New Moon is theatres!!! Are you as excited as I am??? There are a TON of awesome things happening over at Twilight Tuesday. If you’re a Twi-fan… them you are going to LOVE what’s coming up! But first, this week’s challenge… thought up by sweet Eve. She asked us to create a monochromatic card using a Twilight inspired color. I actually thought that this was a pretty tough challenge for me. I never work monochromatically. I love mixing colors together way too much! But I’ve gotta say, it really came together quite nicely! Here’s my card:
I had colored this fantabulous digi (Yes folks, I have tip-toed in to the digi world. Shhh! Don’t tell anyone I’m here!!!) from The Greeting Farm last week. I saw him and just HAD to color him! I mixed my own pearly paint using acrylic (Ceramcoat) and shimmer powder (Jacquard). The consistency of the paint is a little off, but I’m working on fixing it. Then it was all about the colored pencils!
I love how it came out. I wish you could see the shimmer of his skin better, but it’s subtle…just how I wanted it. So after finishing, I wasn’t sure how I wanted to use him. So he just kinda hung out with me for a few days…
Then Eve’s challenge popped into my head. Perfect! I can do this! Monochromatic card… here I come! And so it was born.
My other supplies are: paper- Prism, Reminisce. Tag- Basic grey. Brads- American Crafts. Ink- Ranger. Stamp- Artful INKables.
The rest of the Design Team has come up with some awesome projects as well!
