Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C100 Monochromatic Card

Hello Friends! Today is challenge time again! Crazy 4 Challenges time! This week Frances came up with a fun challenge. The challenge is to create a card with a monochromatic coloring. Well I took it to a step up and created a monochromatic card. Actually, I misunderstood the challenge. . LOL! I thought the challenge was to have the whole card be monochromatic when it's only the image that needs to be monochromatic.

I decided to use a beautiful image by Flourishes. I thought the Flourishes Year in Flowers 2 rose image was perfect for this challenge. I stamped the image using my Stampin Up Rose Red ink on to a speckled cream card stock and mounted it on to a scallop circle then added the satin ribbon to the top of the image.

Do you see the rose printed strip to the background? It's actually fabric! You can't really see the texture of the fabric in the photo but in person you can tell it's fabric rather than paper. To embellish the card, I added lace and stuck dew drops to the lace.

I also used my crochet flowers . . .I'm selling them on Etsy. Right now I only have the smaller flower listed. . .not the bigger one. I'm still working on crocheting bigger flowers. Hopefully, I'll have them listed soon. I stuck 2 beaded pins to the crochet flower and also added a small rosette to the crochet flower.

As you can see, the image is monochromatic! I love the simplicity of it! It makes the image look really elegant!

Okay. . .be sure to stop by C4C and check out the lovely cards the design team created!

Hope you all have a wonderful Saturday!
