Monochromatic Glamour (CIC271)


Come join us at Cupcake Inspirations for our new challenge!

Sparkle N Shine is sponsoring our challenge this week.

This week our challenge is to use Ribbon
Isn't she just gorgeous? Her name is Vivian Hat Lady. So glamorous.




I colored her up using my Prismacolor pencils and it turned out okay for my first time. I admit it, I had to start over two (three) times. :) I was going to color her flowers the same pink as the ribbon but decided it would likely take away from the monochromatic look I was going for (and all that 'sepia' tone I worked so hard to achieve) so I left them white. I think the white embossed oval doesn't make it seem too weird that they're not colored in. All my ovals were cut using my Nestabilities and the embossing folder is Cuttlebug.

The ribbon is from a birthday present my daughter got in March...I'm such a hoarder but I usually hold on to things longer than that so I must be making some progress. :) I think it is perfect on this very girly card.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
