I love doing monochromatic. It is simple, yet can be so appealing! And even classy, depending on your design! There is a twist, however....add a "Pop" of 1 other color! So here is what I created:
I love this image by SheepSki Designs, called Rachel. She was a pleasure to color! With Autumn just starting, Winter can't be far behind. So, with that in mind, I thought I'd go ahead and create something wintery. (That must be a word, cause the autocorrect didn't show up! Lol)
Of course, the first thing I did was to cut out and color my image. I knew red was going to be in the equation, as it's one of my favorite colors with the shades of black. My base card was black, so I wanted my trees to be the white, adding silver stickles and a red gel pen. The DSP behind the trees are grayish snowflakes with a darker gray background. I made the sentiment in a gray color as well, and added white snowflakes for embellishments.
At first I wasn't sure this was going to work. However, it turned out better than I expected. I knew the colors worked, but I wasn't sure about the layout. So I was relieved with the end result!
I hope you join us for this week's challenge! Who wouldn't want to take a crack at winning 3 digis from Andrea's store? They're fantastic!
See you there and thanks for stopping by!
