CES Challenge # 31...Monochromatic


Not sure where the last week has gone...it seems to have flown by...sorry I've not been around much...I hope to catch up this weekend and have a good hop around blogland!

We have a new challenge for you today at CES Challenges...my lovely teamie Shell has chosen the theme which is MONOCHROMATIC! I thought I'd be clever and create my own background without using design papers and I've used this gorgeous butterfly digital image which I coloured with Promarkers...I added some glamour dust for a lil bit of sparkle which doesn't really show that well in my piccy...it's very sparkly in real life! This technique definitely took me out of my comfort zone but I really enjoyed trying something different! My DT buddies have created some rather scrummy cards this week so pop on over if you are in need of any inspiration.

The lucky winner this week will recieve a £10 gift voucher to deduct off any order placed in Crafty Emma's Store (P&P not included)....I hope you'll be able to come and join in the fun with us this week!

Digital Sentiment : TLC
Digital Image : Digi Stamp Boutique
Colouring Medium : Promarkers

Embellishments : Heart Connector, Ribbon & Buttons from Crafty Emma's Store
Tools : Rectangle Nestabilities

Donna, I just love to see your cards because they are so perfect in every way. You always have the perfect papers. Plus you make the cutest additions to each card making it incredibly unique. Like this one with the butterflies - my favorite! I just love the colors and the glitter on the wings. The sentiment and heart with the ribbon is so cute - love, love those cute little buttons and added dragonfly - this makes it just so perfect! I hope you're having a fun weekend!
