Cute Card Thursday - #147 Monochromatic

Our challenge this week at Cute Card Thursday is to create a monochromatic card. Here is my monochromatic card...

Paper: Paper from stash (not sure of company)
Accessories: Flowers, Pearls, Spellbinders Fancy Tags, Copics Airbrush System, Stickles, Fiskars embossing punch, lace, branch punch

I colored the image with a combination of greys, C00 to C09. It is a good lesson in shadowing to work with greys. Rather than color, you can really focus on where the light and shadows fall. I then went back and added shades of purple to the dress, shoes and hair accessory.

I colored my flowers to match the image and paper with my Copics Airbrush System and added Stickles for some sparkle.

I used the sketch from Magnolia Down Under.

Our sposor this week is Simon Says Stamp. Join us in the challenge this week for your chance to win...

Thanks for stopping by today!
