Creative Inspirations Monochromatic

Hey everyone! I know it has been a bit since I have posted. My internet went down which didn't help things and then I have been reassessing how I spend my time a bit and am trying to divide my time now between getting fit, relaxing and crafting. Of course there is all that dreaded housework to fit in there too so I have been a bit absent of late.
We do have another fabulous challenge over at creative inspirations and this time it has been chosen by yours truly and it is monochromatic, (for those not in the know that is shades of one colour) and we are sponsored this wk by Robyns fetish who gave us some great images to work with.

I have used the fab black market paper society papers again (Last time I looked they were back in stock at Craftie Charlie!) along with some lace and cheesecloth from stash, image from Robyns fetish, flowers from Wild orchids and chipboard snowflakes from My mums craft shop. My sentiment is Waltzingmouse.

I have coloured my image with prisma pencils and given him the glamour dust treatment. The stamped snowflakes at the edge are magnolia and I have inked in black memento. The chipboard snowflakes have been painted in white acrylic then glamour dusted. My white flowers have been stickle sparkled and the black have been snowtexed. I have distressed my papers with a blade and then used acrylic paint and rock candy crackle paint to give a turned up edge.

I have followed the sketch this wk for my card over at Willow sketchie and would also like to enter this into Aud sentiments winter theme, Crafty sentiments snowmen, Crafty Anns inspired by a xmas song (Frosty the snowman), Secret crafter white and one other, Whoopsidaisy free and easy, Simply create shades of black, Crafty pad monochromatic and Ohh la la creations let it snow.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog!! Please check out the challenge and join us, the rest of the DT have made some superb creations!
Hugs to all

Mandy said...

Stunning card hun, so cute and so many gorgeous details to look at, love it.
I know what you mean about reorganising your time Rebekah, I did get to the stage where DT cards & commenting became a bit of a chore trying to fit them all in with everyday family life & leaving me so little time to visit the blogs I really enjoy visiting. Do what you are happiest doing hun, your cards are all amazing so it doesn't matter how big a gap between posts everyone will still enjoy visiting you
hugs Mandy xx

Hi Rebekah, what a just stunning card! I know just what you mean about getting caught up in life v crafting v blogging! Hence all my absences from blogland. Well done you tho to add getting fit into it, I really should do something about the baby weight I'm carrying (specially as she's now 4 - long enough to be lazy about it, I think!). Sarah

Sarah said...

Me again! Meant to say - thanks for the photo tips, I'm going to have to get a photo cube I think and I'll have a look at the programme as well. Sarah
