Good Morning all!
I hope you're looking forward to a relaxing Sunday! I know I am!
It's time for the new challenge at The Crafty Pad!
This weeks sponsor is
They are offering the latest copy of the magazine which is the Christmas edition,
due out on Friday 28th October & a Goody Bag as the prize!
This week, the theme for challenge #143 at The Crafty Pad week is
We want to see your monochromatic creations!
Here's the definition from an online dictionary
1. Having or appearing to have only one color.
2. Of or composed of radiation of only one wavelength: monochromatic light.
3. Done in monochrome: monochromatic prints and paintings.
4. Of or exhibiting monochromatism.
Here's my creation
The DT were given Debbie's wonderful Albert Snoozing image to work with!
He looks like a real happy chap snoozing away!
I was tempted to add a few z's but resisted! lol
Now when I looked at Albert I thought he has to be night fishing.
(Got me singing the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band song Fishin' in the dark in my head!)
That explains my colour choice!
Well that & the fact that purple is my favourite colour! lol
The lay out was a sketch from last weeks challenge at Sketch Saturday
I knew the challenge would be closed by the time I blogged my card
but I just loved the sketch!
I distressed all the layers & inked the edges with distress inks.
I used cored'inations cardstock for the majority of the layers, one of which I
embossed using a Cuttlebug Bubbles embossing folder.
I pierced around each layer & added some faux stitching with a white gel pen.
So this is Albert Snoozing a little bit closer up!
I coloured him up with Promarkers & tried to make him look kind of grey,
like it was night time. I added a few stars in the night sky with a Sakura Clear Star pen.
You can just about make them out!
The Sentiment ticket is from The Crafty Pad too!
My fiinishing touches were a couple of buttons from my jar, one of which I threaded
with bakers twine, tied a bow & then cut the loops.
I hope you like my little card & are inspired to join in the
Monochromatic challenge at The Crafty Pad this week!
