Lexi’s Creations #59 Monochromatic

Our challenge at Lexi’s this fortnight is Monochromatic.

I have chosen pink as my theme

Lexi 59 Main

My image is from our sponsor at Lexi’s image and is called ‘Nancy with Boquet’.

Since I have never seen a pink animal in my life, I obviously opted to colour Nancy in something other than pink! I used my pro and flex markers.

Lexi 59 Floral

The papers are from Basic Grey and First Edition, and I distressed them both and embossed the bottom layer with white and pink glitter embossing powders, and I repeated the process around the image mat’s edge. The ribbon is from an old skirt that finally gave up the ghost and provided me with a good 4 yards of pink lacey ribbon! The flowers are stamped with Elusive Images stamps onto some K&Co paper, and cut out. The twirly wires I made myself. The diecuts are Marianne. The Guaze has been tinted with a Distress Ink.
