This week we have a monochrome challenge for you.
You can use any colour you like for your project -
As a sample, here is Ina's favorite color!

Here is what I did --- an ATC card. :-)  As you can see, mine is in the blue family with a touch of the white.

This is an ATC - Artist Trading Card. For being a 2.5"x3.5", it took as much work as a bigger card! But it was so very fun! I had thin chipboard, so I cut 2 - 2.5"x3.5" and glued them together with Scotch Tacky Glue. Then I cut out the background paper the same size and distressed the edges with the Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked the sides up with TH salty ocean distressed ink. My next step was to put 2 layers of Ultra Thick Clear Embossing Powder on top of that. It gives it a glassy look. I then layered a strip of Sky Blue Stripes (Paper Temptress website) toward the left of the card. I added 2 pieces of lace and a tiny doily from Gone Artsy Pearl White Medallion Venice Lace. I added blue glass glitter, the mirror, and the butterfly, all from Reneabouquets. Lastly, I added a few flat-backed pearls.  

I love mixed biggest problem is deciding where to put them when I'm done! (Yes, I do give some's just that I make so many! I can't help myself! Lol!)

Be sure to come over and join the challenge! I wouldn't want you to miss out on that $10 GC!! And have fun with it!!
