Just Add Monochrome!

Monochromatic describes paintings, drawings, design, or photographs in one color or shades of one color.

Monochromatic colors are all the colors (tints, tones, and shades) of a single hue.

Example of Monochromatic color

Monochromatic color schemes are derived from a single base hue, and extended using its shades, tones and tints (that is, a hue modified by the addition of black, gray (black + white) and white.   As a result, the energy is more subtle and peaceful due to a lack of contrast of hue. Monochromatic color schemes may be considered boring unless there is diversity within the design.

So this is what I came up with…….

I’ve used Baja Breeze, Marina Mist, Very Vanilla and the Elegant Soiree Designer Series Papers.  The Ribbon is the Marina Mist 5/8″ Grosgrain.  I used the Scalloped Circle and Boho Blossom Punches to make the flower.   And the Butterflies are made with the Big Shot and the Beautiful Wings Die.

My fav part was the Glitter and Diamante’s- that I added at the end and I think it really finishes it all off nicely.

So go and check out the other Monochromatic Creations by the Just Add Ink Design Team.  Then make up a project yourself and submit your entry too.
