TSG103 Monochromatic Magic


This week’s challenge at There She Goes is brought to us by our Trendsetter of the Week, Karen. She wants us to create a monochromatic card. In order to do that you would choose ,  one or more shades of one color along with ONE neutral color to use in your creation. We can’t wait to see what you come up with! As you can see... I kept to the challenge pretty much... as long as the base isn't considered my neutral... I must remember to look at the challenge a bit more closely before I go ahead and make my card. As soon as I saw this week's challenge, I remembered the Graphic45 DP that I bought on my trip to the US.  I hadn't used it yet, so of course it was ready to get used.  The colors remind me of vintage and with the look of the new Tulip set from TSG they were a match made in heaven if I do say so myself.  I've stamped the tulip in Versafine Vintage Sepia and then embossed it with clear embossing powder.  To add a bit of dimension, I used a Pastel chalk pencil in brown and tried blending it a little bit. The layout for my card is from this week's Unscripted Sketch challenge which I have flipped onto it's side. This week at Sugar Creek Hollow,  their challenge is to create a card with a monochromatic scheme which this card is perfect for. Wahoo!! Love their challenges! 

To be eligible for the giveaway, you are to create a card that utilizes monochromatic coloring, and then come back to the TSG Blog. By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the look out to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG103 so we can check out your beautiful work!

Thanks for popping by today!!

Beautiful card! And you did a great job with the sketch. I love that little swirl of pearls at the bottom right hand corner! Thanks so much for joining us this week at Unscripted Sketches! Becky

PS - Hubby and I were fortunate to visit your town a few years ago. We sat in the waterfront park for ages and watched the seaplanes land and take off. It is a really beautiful place! :o)
