Monochromatic

Good morning
I hope you are well ...
Today we have a brand new challenge at City Crafter ... brought to us by Linda ...
Linda is asking that we create a monochromatic card or project 


Our Guest Designer once again is the uber talented Rebecca Deeprose (Paper Primrose.com) ... A winner and spotlight artist of CCCB  
If you have time this week ... and would like a chance to guest design here at City Crafter please come along and join us ...


I played with the soft neutral tones this week


All my papers digital  ... even those little bees ... or perhaps they're wasps ... paper ones are the only kinda wasps I like!


I started with a digital paper by Pink Petticoat ... Here
Then added a free paper from Astrids Artistic Efforts ... Here 
which I overlayed with the chicken wire overlay from Here
The bees are from my all time favourite The Graphics Fairy  ... I printed and cut various sizes and glittered their little wings


 The flower was made using lace, faux leather and a ceramic earring
You can just notice a little TH tissue tape there too and black stitching ... my machine hates black thread ... hence the uneven stitching ... Finally a computer generated sentiment to finish my card ... swiped with Antique Linen distress ink ...

I loved this challenge and can't wait to see your creations ... right now I'm off to the blog to see what the rest of the team have created ...

Thanks so much for stopping by and thank you for your lovely comments ... I really appreciated each and every one ...

Keep Safe

Just lovely. love how you've 'Ros'd up the inspiration photo. The Bees and flowers look so restful- in fact I'd quite like to live in that card right now! x
