Dream Valley Challenges #139 Monochrome

Good afternoon, and Happy Monday to you all!

It's time for a new Challenge at Dream Valley and our theme is Monochrome. That is, use shades of just one colour - except for face and hair if you're using an image of a person. I went with blue:


My Christmas card uses an old Lili of the Valley stamp, sadly she no longer seems to be available. I coloured her with Promarkers - I find monochrome quite tricky, and since I know my Promarkers better than my Copics, I went with the old favourites! All the fur on her outfit is glittered with Icicle Stickles. The papers are also LotV, I distressed the edges and added some Stormy Sky DI.

The large snowflake is an old die from Marianne, also now unavailable, it seems, and I used a Simon Says Stamp Season's Greetings die. fo the sentiment, which I went over with a white gel pen for emphasis.

The ribbon is actually an old sticker from who-knows-where (ie my stash!) and the pretty cotton lace is from Crafty Ribbons.  The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts.

Our sponsor is the awesome Crafty Ribbons


Do go and see their site, they have the most wonderful things!
