Lexi’s Creations 110 Monochromatic

Our challenge over at Lexi’s Creations this time is Monochromatic. So as long as your project is all one colour or shades of that colour, you will qualify.

Lexi 110

I printed out a bunch of papers from Nitwit called Time for Tea. There are some gorgeous ones in there with purple as the main colour but other lovely colours too, but of course, I wanted my papers to fit the monochrome theme.

Following a sketch from Sketchy Colours (see below in the challenge list) I mattend and layered all the layers. Woohoo I finally found a use for my Circle Cutter! Although I found a drawback with it. You can’t cut circles if the cutter isn’t weighing the paper down unless you tape the paper to the glass mat, as it spins the paper and cuts all wobbly.

My image is from Milk Coffee and is called Tiffany goes on Holiday. I coloured her with my copics. The frame around her is from Joy Crafts, and the flowers and bow are all from the new Sue Wilson dies. I added a few pearls just to finish off.

I am entering this into the following:-

4 Crafty Chicks – #181 Use Pearls
A Gem of a Challenge – #113 Spots and Stripes
Addicted to Stamps and More – #82 Make Your Mark
Digi Design Challenge – Tic, Tac, Toe (Diagonal left to right, Digi, Diecuts, flowers)
Hiding In My Craftroom – #137 Designer Paper x3 (I’ve taken my lead from the DT and presume that more than three papers are ok!)
Lisa Somerville Bloggers Challenge – Two or More Patterned Papers
Little Claire Monthly – #42 Monotone
Open Minded Crafting – #4 Monochrome
Sketchy Colours #198 – Sketch
