CCM # 61 Monochrome Magic

Today is a brand new Sponsor day again over at Crafty Cardmakers and the prizes are absolutely fantastic! You need to scurry on over there and see if you can create something to match our theme of Monochrome Magic.

CCM 61 Main

We are sponsored by both Digi Doodle Shop and also by our newest Sponsor IndigoBlu and if I hadn’t been in hospital and laid up with my back I fully intended to do something with part of their fabulous prize myself, namely the gorgeous Love Is stamp. If I get a chance I will create something between now and next fortnight and post it here. Do please stop by the blog though as one or two of the team have used both Digi Doodle Shop images or IndigoBlu products or in one case BOTH!

So onto my interpretation of the theme. Obviously monochromatic creations are meant to be in one colour family, and I chose orange. I seem to be having a Magnolia moment as I can’t put Tilda down! I have coloured my lovely little ‘Tilda with Daisy’ with pros and flexies. My papers are from Basic Grey’s Picadilly pad, and I trimmed them out with a MS punch. The lower layer I edged with Ripe Persimmon DI (my favourite of the limited edition colours) to lift if off the pale orange background a little as it almost disappeared before.

CCM 61 Corner

Tilda is matted onto a nestie die cut and I threaded some lush shimmery organza ribbon around the edge. The flowers are from my stash, as are the little porcelain butterfly, the heart gems and the lovely wired glass beads.
