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.

Inkspiration Colour Challenge # 30

Ohh this is really exciting (for me) cause this week I am the Guest Designer on Makeesha’s Inkspiration  Colour Challenge.  You may have seen a few weeks ago the Card (below) I did for her last Colour challenge – well that was choosen as the winning one – and that is how I because the Guest Designer this week…..exciting aye?

So onto the Challenge.  Here are the colours:

I kinda did not know what to do with this – and I ended up making Three different things.  But the one I have submitted for the Challenge was the last one. 

I’ve used the Very Vintage Wheel for the background.  I inked the Medallion with Old Olive and then stamped some Rich Razzleberry flowers onto it – then I stamped the Medallion onto wet Watercolour Paper. 

Here is the first Card I did:I did not submit this one because I realised I had used the same stamps as I had used on the last colour challenge.

So then the second card I did was this one. 

And I realised that this also was the same as the Challenge Sketch from last week…..so I made the Medallion Card that you have seen already.  Oh well – I got there in the end!  I’ve really enjoyed having a go at these Challenges in the last few weeks.  Here is the link so you can have a go too.

Inkspiration Sketch Challenge #29

The Inkspiration challenge this week is a Sketch Challenge – I really enjoyed joining in last week – so thought I would give this one a go too.  There was also a little “Add On” to the Challenge this week – which is to use something from your stash that you have been hoarding for a while.   EASY – I have heaps of stuff like that!!  This is the Sketch.

Makeesha+Sketch+029-1 

Here is the card I created.

There are actually a few things on this card that I have had in my Stash for a while…..

Firstly the 3 Flowers from the Pretties Kit.  I have had my Pretties Kit for about 2 years and have only just started to use the flowers.  I have coloured the top two flowers and stamped on the largest one. 

Secondly – the wide Twill Tape (which is under the Certainly Celery Ribbon).  Here I have stamped on it.  I have used it a couple of times – but it is one of those ribbons that I never use much.

I decided to make this a Z Fold Card – which luckily also fits with the sketch.  That works well for me because the Class I am running next week is a Z Fold Class.  So if you’re coming along – here is a preview of one of the projects.  (Unless I change it between now and then)!
