Copic Creations Challenge #28


My goodness it's hard to believe that we are on our 28th Copic Creations Challenge. That's exciting, and we've got a great challenge for you this time. The challenge is to color with a monochromatic color-scheme. Katie from PMS Stamps did a wonderful tutorial on how to do this and I have to say I've had fun using this technique. For one thing, it takes the work out of deciding what colors to color with. PMS Stamps is also our sponsor for this challenge and the images the DT used are all from PMS Stamps. I decided to keep my whole card fairly monochromatic, except for a touch of pink to represent the rose. I used my Taste of Textile DP's from Stampin' Up and I loved using them for this project. My sentiment is computer-generated and mounted atop pink satin ribbon with a Prima Rose at the top. I hope you'll check out the tutorials offered with this challenge and give it a try. I think you'll enjoy it. Be sure to check out the wonderful cards the rest of the DT did and have a wonderful week-end.

Karen, Karen, Karen! You really blew this challenge right out of the water. Your coloring and shading are soooo perfect, of course! And I love how you've placed this little cutie to look as though she's stepping right out of the oval! The topper is just the right amount of color on the rose! This one should definitely be framed! I love it. I agree too, I think you hit the nail on the head about not having to choose which colors to use, I think that's why I enjoyed this technique so much! Awesome card! hugz, Mary

Karen, this is beautiful! Just that touch of color on the rose is so pretty. These papers were the perfect choice for your delicate monochromatic creation, too. Love how you did the sentiment. It's just pretty all over!
