You know what today is...yup...it's TLT and we've got a cracker for you this week. I hope you'll all give this one a try :-D But before I go into the gory details I want to thank those that entered last week's WOW challenge. The numbers were down slightly but the quality was just as amazing as ever! Take a wander over to the Challenge Blog to see if you were a winner and get back to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your choice of stamp (value £6.50) :-D
On to this weeks challenge...it was the turn of our lovely French Ladybug Gaelle and she chose monochrome. Now I don't know about you but to me monochrome is black and white... I've never heard it defined any other way...until now. Gaelle explained it better (I was going to copy and paste it but I can't find her description on the DT blog) but basically the way my small brain sees it, monochrome is shades of one colour. So basically pick a colour and keep your card to that except for hair and skin!!!
I really wanted to use Amber for this card since I've used the other 3 BFF's so that's exactly what I did....see what you think...
The light for these photos wasn't the best and I'm reluctant to bring out my photo tent because I know it will sit on the dining room table until I next entertain and that could be a while lol.
It looks like I've got everything but the kitchen sink on this card lol. I just kept going and going but I think it looks alright. I hope it's monochrome enough otherwise I'm in big trouble!
I'm really enjoying cutting out the images ala Mary J. Apart from taking up less space than a mounted image it's looks flabulous!
She's just so purdy :-D
I wanted to use more than one sentiment but in a different way and since Amber's a cheerleader what better than having the sentiments coming out of the megaphone.
This is one of gorgeous new ribbons I am selling on my website and yes it comes this way. I've been wanting to use this one for ages...it's a lovely soft pink and would be perfect for a baby card.
The other Ladybugs have got some megalicious inspiration for you so make sure you check their blogs and while you're there why not leave some Ladybug Love. I know some of you might think what you have to say isn't important or worry your comment might sound silly but believe me when I say your comments push us to work that bit harder to bring more inspiration your way.
Have a great TLT and I'll...
Catch ya later x
