Crafty Cardmakers Challenge - Monochrome.

Welcome to all my new followers, hope you enjoy the journey.
Hi! back again to tell you that it's time for another challenge over
at Crafty Cardmakers.

  Jackie is hosting today and our challenge is Monochrome (hair and skin colours allowed).

As usual you can enter anything you fancy, it doesn't have to just be cards, as long as it meets the challenge, and doesn't exceed the 15 total challenges entered rule! 

Hope you will join in.
And here is my project for the challenge:

To make this card I started with a Masterboard.
Apply Distress Oxide to the craft sheet and dab the card over it until you've picked up the colour.
I used several colours of pink to get this effect, Dry the card between colours to stop them blending together.

Next I used the same colours to stamp with.
The stamps I used were Paper Artsy by Emma Godfrey.
I used some of the flowers from the set to build the detail.
I Stamped these with Ist, 2nd and 3rd generation ink to build up depth to the design.


I also stamped a black card blank with the same colours. This is the good thing about Oxides, they stamp really well on black card.

To finish the card I cut two different sized square mats and one for the sentiment which were mounted on black. These were edged with the pink inks.
I attached the ribbon to the centre mat before mounting it onto the card.

 As you can see I have also cut out some of the flowers to use for the decoration and applied small pink gems to the centre.
The larger flower was made with three layers and finished with 3D glaze and another pink gem before being attached to the card.

I hope you will pop over to see what the rest of the DT have been up to and maybe join in the challenge.
I look forward to seeing what you come up with too.
 Happy crafty card making.
