Lexi’s Creations 84 Monochrome

Today at Lexi’s Creations we want to see your Monochrome creations. So that’s shades of just one colour. We will, of course, allow skin/hair tones, but otherwise please keep to just mainly one colour.

Lexi 84 Monochrome Main

My card was made for my SIL’s birthday, which happens to be today, Happy Birthday Steve! He is my Mr. Fixit, nearly always when he comes to visit with Emily he ends up wielding a drill, just like the Mo Manning image, so it seemed to suit him.

I have coloured him with copics. The papers are from the DCWV Old Worlde Stack, which has been in my stash since Adam was a lad, or at least it seems that way! I made the pliers and screwdriver from inkjet printable shrink plastic which can be purchased from Crafty Computer Paper. The green twine is actually garden twine I found in the kitchen drawer, and I made a small ball of it to look like a ball of string, cos every man I know has some string somewhere in his DIY kit!
