A Monochromatic Color Challenge

Hello everyone! Yesterday, I posted the color challenge on Stamp TV. This week it is to create a card using monochromatic colors (plus neutrals). You have until April 7th to upload your card on Stamp TV with the keyword "STVCC6" for your chance to win your choice of a stamp set from Gina K Designs valued at $24.95 or less!

Here is my card:

I used Take Flight (Gina K Designs) for the main image on this card. I colored the butterfly with Copics and cut it out. I used the ribbon from the Floral Frenzy kit to lace through the sentiment, from Flowers for Daisy.

I colored a sateen flower with a Copic marker and layered it over a Prima flower that I colored with a darker marker. I stuck a decorative head pin through the center.

The white, onyx and vanilla cardstock are Gina K Pure Luxury.

Hope you play along in the challenge!

Materials used: Stamps-Take Flight, Flowers for Daisy (Gina K Designs); Memento black ink, Brown Staz-On; Copic markers; cardstock-Pure Luxury-Onyx, white, vanilla (Gina K Designs); caramel (SU!); sateen flower (Gina K Designs); prima flower; Anna Griffin Designer Mylar sheet; brads (Gina K Designs-Floral Frenzy Kit); ribbon (Gina K Designs - Floral Frenzy kit); clear embossing powder, Versamark; heat tool; decorative head pin (Hirschberg Schutz & Co); Tag trios dies (Spellbinders); textile embossing folder (Provocraft); Cuttlebug (Provocraft); dimensionals (SU!).

Thanks for stopping by!
