Monochromatic Card

Hi!  I have a simple project today.  I was recently challenged to create a monochromatic card.  I thought it would be easy as I love coloring in shades of browns and grey. However, the rules were to color any shade BUT greys and browns.  So, I went to my next favorite group and colored from the BG family.

This was actually much harder than I thought it would be as I wanted different shading for each area and not one gradual change from light to dark.  I started with a Kraft base and added a page from the Prima Fairy tales paper.  Next I added three strips of AC Glitter Tape in shades Aqua and Peacock for added depth.  My aqua strip was actually the half-inch size so I cut it down into two 1/4" lengths.  This isn't found in the store, but you can sign up here for the next Glitter Tape club . . . totally worth it!

After coloring my image, I trimmed and placed so that there is room for a sentiment at a later time.  Right now, this is in my Copic Portfolio which I update pretty frequently so it's always good to leave them slightly neutral so you can customize it at a later date for last minute cards.

Thanks for looking and hopefully I have inspired you to try something out of your comfort range.  Feel free to share your projects!
